Professor Lam is an extraordinary talent in art and science and a very successful businessman and philanthropist. He is also a world renowned artist and is widely recognised as one of the eight greatest contemporary artists in Hong Kong. He has been aptly named the “Renaissance Man” by Professor Leo Ou-Fan Lee of Harvard University for his talent. He is also known for inventing Chromoskedasic Painting (or Nano Art) in 1991, a technique in which colour images are produced using only black and white photographic paper and solutions.
Professor Lam aims to bring the public to his world of arts and share his belief of harmony: “In today’s world, it is only through the mutual respect and harmony between heaven, earth and man that world peace and prosperity can be attained.” He hopes that through art, complemented by science and charity, mutual understanding between different people will be enhanced.

He aims to share his art with the public, and to create a lifestyle which is enriched with art.
