Furze Chan was born in Hong Kong, where she currently lives and works. She studied at the School of Design in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University for her bachelor degree of Visual Communication Design. After graduation, she worked mainly as a freelance graphic designer. In 2009, she launched her own paper product brand “With Her Animal Poetry” introducing festive cards and paper puppets featuring her own drawings. Her interest in colour pencils has been developed since then.
Starting from 2016, with colour pencils as the main medium, Furze shifted to be an illustrator. She has participated in numerous projects including works of still illustrations and also animations. Examples of works include the Art of Shinkansen animation for JR Central Japan Railways in 2018, and the SHALL WE TALK animations and print ads for the Advisory Committee on Mental Health in 2022. Her previous overseas clients include JR Central Japan Railways, Medium(US), New York Times(US) and previous local clients include K11 MUSEA, Obscura Magazine and WWF Hong Kong. She now provides illustrations in a weekly manner for M le magazine du Monde, a popular magazine in France.
From 2019 to 2020, Furze created the column Furniture Music on Obscura Magazine. Various types of subjects, such as bedsheets, plants, windmills and raindrops, were re-interpreted into soft palettes through minimal compositions. There was a particular drawing capturing the dapples of sunlight inside the forest as the subject, which led to the exhibition Light.
Furze is also one of the founders of 1984 Publishing
