Overview

Lam Tung Pang (b. 1978, Hong Kong)’s artistic practice encompasses painting, drawing, performance, video, and installation. Assembling traditional iconography and found objects, Lam creates layered allegorical landscapes that engage themes of history, memory, and time. These works capture the nuanced emotions that seep out from beneath the weight of drastic socio-political change. Lam currently lives and works in Hong Kong.

 

Lam received his BFA from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and his MFA from Central Saint Martins in London. He is the recipient of the Asian Cultural Council Fellowship in 2012. His works are collected by many important institutions internationally, including the San Francisco Asian Art Museum, United States; Hong Kong Museum of Art; M+ Museum, Hong Kong, among others. The Legislative Council of Hong Kong has commissioned Lam to create an iconic, monumental work "Centuries of Hong Kong" for its complex.
