Alan Chan received his BFA from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2005.

He is trained in traditional painting techniques. Chan learned the "Alla Prima" (impressionistic) style of painting from the Academy of Art University, a technique which emphasizes working with wet on wet techniques and finishing the painting in a few sittings. He loves the old master techniques and did research on his own, learning impasto and glazing techniques by reading books and experimenting. Chan's favorite artist of all time is Rembrandt.

In describing his Alla Prima paintings, Chan says:

"I want to show energy and spontaneity because that’s how nature is in real life, it's chaotic. I figured I already have a strong foundation of skills so I can just dive right in. When I think about it, it's really more of a subconscious thing going on. I just paint, not trying to render a tree, mountain, cloud etc... And then I just stop. I feel that my work is honest, it is what it is. I'm not trying to imitate any kind of art movement, or any other artist. My work is what it is, that’s the best I can explain it. I don’t have a label for it like contemporary impressionism, abstract, expressionism, realism etc., or any kind of "ism". When I stop that’s all I wanted to show."
