The Royal Wigs, NYC, 2007. Archival digital print.


New Jersey-based artist Chung (Fanky) Chak’s exhibit, The Boxes Project, features 40" x 40" digitally manipulated photomontages depicting hectic urban environments. Each photomontage includes hundreds to thousands of window pictures taken from different cities around the world. The resulting collection from each city highlights stereotypes and personality we associate with each respective city or region.

Chak arrived in the United States in his early 20s and was fascinated with storefronts and beautiful windows on Broadway in New York City. He was "looking from the outside, imagining the inside." The stereotypes he learned from TV helped him fantasize about the stories behind the windowpanes.

This led to The Boxes Project where Chak used stereotypical associations to construct narratives in his montages, and leaves it up to the audience to decide whether the stereotypes are true. Chak's work also reveals more than intended about human nature and urban life. Images from this series were taken in NYC, New Mexico, Berlin, Montreal, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.

Chak is currently an Associate Professor of Graphic Design at the College of New Jersey. Chak's work has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the US and internationally.
