Lau Hong Lam achieved B.A. (Hons) degree in Visual Arts from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University in 2019. He studied at Accademia de Belle Arti di Bologna, Italy for one semester exchange programme in 2017. And he studied in B.A. (Hons) in Creative Arts and Culture (Major in Visual Arts) in 2014-2015.
Lau’s works mainly focus on intaglio after graduation. In 2019, he received Hong Kong Open Printshop Award for Printmaking. He is invited to be an artist-in-residence of the printshop and hosts a solo exhibition.
Lau has participated in the exhibitions in Hong Kong and overseas. His works are collected by local and overseas private collectors.
Lau’s works use still life as his genre; combining with classical intaglio, his works create a harmonious and tranquil atmosphere. He likes to use symbols and puns to express his interpretation and experience to the world and daily life. On his works, the general compositions convey a relax and humorous daily. Under his works, the details and depictions of objects keep the secrets out of the daily. In recent years, he concentrates on mezzotint; and makes a new attempt of combining his illustrations, design and narratives nature into his works.
