Stanley Chow’s work is all about his home, Manchester. Born in 1974 he grew up, studied and continues to live and work in Manchester to this date. As a local club DJ, Chow started designing and illustrating flyers and posters for the venues he played in and has never looked back.
Chow now works internationally throughout design, editorial, advertising and fine art sectors and his illustrative designs are one of the most recognisable styles in today’s design industry.
The internationally renowned illustrator is currently presenting his retrospective work at The Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art in Manchester, with the closing event on June 19th, where his framed prints will be available to buy.
All proceeds of the sale will go towards the CFCCA artistic programme. The evening will also feature food from Manchester’s Hip Hop Chip Shop, who will be taking up residence outside the CFCCA building, providing tasty bites for takeaway visitors.
The Centre for Contemporary Chinese Art’s Gallery 2 space has been transformed by the memories of Chow’s childhood, bringing together works from almost 20 years ago to the current day. As a Manchester born artist whose parents emigrated from Hong Kong in the 1960’s, Stanley takes CFCCA on an immersive trip down memory lane, turning the window space into a Chinese takeaway shop front.
