Painter, draughtsman, teacher and designer, born in Hong Kong. He studied graphic design at Aberdeen College of Commerce, then at Gray’s Art School, Aberdeen, under Alexander Fraser and Gordon Bryce, where he later taught. Fan obtained a first-class honours degree in drawing and painting. His pictures mixed Eastern figures, over-ripe fruit, pigs and carved grotesques and were painterly with a pleasingly muted palette. In the mid-1980s Fan acquired a batch of awards, including first prize in the Commonwealth Section of the 1985 Rank Xerox Selected National Competition 86; a first prize in the 1987 Wood Group Young Artists’ Award; and in 1988 a Carnegie Travelling Scholarship, RSA. Further awards included first prizes, Royal Over-Seas League, 1993, and The Morrison Portrait Award, 1995.
