Lam Wu Fui

Born in 1945. Jieyang, Guangdong Province. 

Lam studied landscape painting under Leung Baiyu, and then studied under Zhao Shao’ang. After long years of art exploring, his works become a refreshing fusion of western and eastern artistic techniques. The varieties of subjects in his paintings are each marked by special traits. His flowers are marked by fresh ink tones and rich colors, making them splendid and fascinating; his animals are vividly portrayed, accurate in form and lifelike in spirit; his birds are refined and delicate, endowed with various kinds of postures. Having apprehended the principle of creation and growth, he succeeds in capturing the form of various kinds of objects; His best works’ themes are cranes and egrets. The beautiful ways of the cranes dancing and flying in his painting are elegant, filled with sublimity and freedom.


Since 1978, he has held solo exhibitions in Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Korea, England, Germany, Australia and the United States. Many major public collectors have collected his paintings.
