Darshan Chan
Photographer 摄影师
WellSpace founder 创始人

Darshan Chan, a graduate of the experimental art department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, worked as an assistant for London-based fashion photographer Scarlettca Sciellohe in 2015.

Darshan Chan, 毕业于中央美术学院实验艺术系,在2015年为伦敦时尚摄影师Scarlettca Sciellohe担任助手工作。

After that Darshan worked as photographer for fashion magazines like Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and shot portraits of Wim Wenders, Béla Tarr, John Woo, Jacky Chan, Donnie Yen among others. Before the age of 20, Darshan dreamt to be an artist, but after a long period of academic study, she found that she lacks patience to spend enormous time and energy required to create artworks. So she began thinking about what kind of works and media have more realistic significance and value. In the beginning of 2020, Darshan founded WellSpace and invited her favorite Japanese graphic artist Yui Takada to be the brand’s visual designer.

掌镜后曾为时尚芭莎,Vogue等时尚刊物担任摄影师,也曾为维姆.文德斯, 贝拉.塔尔,吴宇森,成龙,甄子丹等拍摄肖像照。在二十岁以前的理想是一名艺术家或者手艺匠人,但经历了漫长的学院派的学习后才发现自己对需要花费大量时间精力创作作品毫无耐心。于是开始思考什么样的作品和媒介更具现实意义和价值,并且在2020年初创立了Well Space,并邀请最喜欢的日本平面艺术家高田唯Yui Takada为WellSpace担任品牌视觉标识设计。

“I just want to pursue my passion, and don’t care much about professional labels and identity. The goal of establishing WellSpace is quite simple: nowadays a lot of Chinese brands or spaces in need new art medium or concept. I’d say, culture of today resembles a lot the new wave of post WWII Germany— everyone‘s eager to seek a new way to define themselves, so we will join the game, and work together with you. “

Darshan 说“我只想追逐自己的热情,并不在意自己的职业标签和身份,成立WellSpace的目的非常简单,就是现在的中国有许多品牌或者空间需要新的艺术媒介和理念去填补,这个时期的文化很像二战以后的德国新浪潮,大家在迫不及待的寻求一种新的方式去定义自身,所以我们将加入这个游戏,并且和大家一起合作。”
