Lam Tian Xing



Lam Tian Xing - Biography

Lam Tian Xing (formerly known as Lam Sin), also known as “Master of the Hall of Boundlessness”, a renowned contemporary ink color painter, has been studying and practicing Chinese painting, Western painting and Chinese calligraphy since he was fourteen. During 30 years of artistic exploration, he has gradually developed his own profound style, which blends the traditional framework of Chinese ink color painting with bold western techniques. Rich, vibrant colors form layered images that are both abstract and concrete.

 

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.

 

Since the late 1990s Lam has created a series of work on the theme of Hong Kong scenery and landscapes. He also travelled to Tibet three times, risking his life, and created his “Tibet in Tian Xing” series. His latest series “Lotus in Tian Xing”, has been his focus in recent years. All these have uniquely marked his personal artistic development. His paintings are well received by public and private collectors alike, both local and overseas.

 

Lam was born in October 1963 in Fujian Province, China. He began studying Western and Chinese paintings in 1978 under the guidance of masters such as Wu Gouguang, Lin Guang, Chen Ting and Liu Mu. He immigrated to Hong Kong in 1984. He returned to China to continue his studies and graduated from the Chinese Painting Department of Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1990. Lam took a teaching post at the Hong Kong First Institute of Art and Design upon his graduation, and taught there until 1998.

 

Lam 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 Centennial Exhibition of Chinese Paintings in Beijing, 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 also participated in more than one hundred joint exhibitions around the globe.

 

Lam’s works have been widely collected by private and corporate 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 Airline, the Credit Suisse HK Representative Offices. Moreover, he has published more than twenty albums of his work.

 

Lam, the chairman of the Hong Kong International Art Association, is now working as a professional painter. He is also a member of the China Artists' Association, a member of the Founding Committee of the Chinese Painting Institute, a specialist of the Li Keran Academy of Painting, the visiting painter of the Shenzhen Art Gallery and the consultant of the 4-D Art Club.

 

Lam is the Art Consultant of Cheer Bell Gallery since May 2015.
