Artist Biography

 

Lam Tian Xing was born in 1963 in Fuzhou, China. He has studied under the tutelage of several renowned Chinese artists: Wu Guoguang, Lin Guang, Chen Ting and Liu Mu. He moved to Hong Kong in 1984 and went to Beijing to further his study at the Chinese Painting Department of Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts. Systematic training in the academy laid a solid, profound scholar foundation for his creative work later. In the mid to late 80's, under the influence of the Western Modern Art, Lam began his personalised art-language exploration. He tried to define the contemporary meaning of the traditional landscape paintings by deconstructing the elements of colours and structures of traditional landscape paintings, and yet kept the soul and essences of it. 

 

In the sub-sequential works, Lam did not limit his creation in the "form", yet he integrated "form" and "substance" together. Lotus and Tibet are the two favourite subjects of Lam. It was well known to the public that Lam is madly in love with lotus. He said, the connections between the lotus and Buddha religion are inextricable, that "Buddha is in every bloom" that they are symbols of holy and purity. 

 

Lam visited Tibet three times, following the footsteps of the pious believers, the holy monks in the snovy mountains, paying highest respects to them. Painting is the portrait of the artist's mind and soul. With the reverence for the nature in heart, and the compassion for the ordinary, one will find the vivid vitality in all creatures; even a flower, a pound of water, a monk or a temple. Lam did not make special effort to emphases the holy mountains and the holy lakes, but simply used abstract symbols to preset them in his paintings. His magnificent brilliant colours and twinkling looming contour of the mountains and lakes painted a natural distant images of the far land of spirituality.

 

Lam is currently the chairman of the Hong Kong International Art Association, and has held more than 50 solo exhibitions in Beijing, Hong Kong, New York, Berlin, Milan, Singapore, Taipei and Seoul. His works have exhibited at the Beijing Centennial Exhibition of Chinese Paintings, the China National Art Exhibition, the Art Exhibition Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Reform and Opening, the International Ink Painting Biennial Exhibition of Shenzhen, the Contemporary Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition, to name a few. He has participated in more than one hundred joint exhibitions around the globe. His works have been widely collected by private and corpo-rate organizations, both local and overseas. Museum collections include the National Art Museum of China, the Research Institute of Chinese Painting in Beijing, the Guangzhou Museum of Art, the Shenzhen Museum of Art, the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Heritage Museum of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Government House, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council of Washington, the Cathay Pacific, the Hong Kong Four Season Hotel, the Macau Four Season Hotel, the Hong Kong Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the Beijing Shangri-La Hotel, the United Air-line, the Credit Suisse HK Representative Offices. He has published more than twenty albums of his work.

 

Lam was twice invited by the Chinese Ministry of Culture to paint on the theme of Hong Kong views. The paintings, “Morning Songs” and “Sideview in Victoria Harbour” accompanied the space journeys of Shenzhou VI and Shenzhou VII in 2005 and 2008 respectively, bearing witness to these important national milestones, and bringing honour to Hong Kong.
