"My themes and inspirations come from little things, everyday life and old photos that I have taken. If I feel the photo impress upon me, I will use it for my painting idea. I will change the color tone, atmosphere and composition in order to get the ideal visual effect."
Hong Kong artist, Kam Tim Lam has worked in the fields of Graphic Design, Advertising, Design and Fashion Design. The past few years he has picked up his paintbrush and began his creative journey as a professional fine artist. Kam Tim Lam specializes in watercolor and new dimensional Chinese ink painting with a semi-realistic, modern style.
"Personally, I love heavier tones, strong color and high contrasts, and more sense of space in pictures. Some of my paintings reflect a fusion of Oriental and Western style and technique. I like experimenting with the composition in order to create a dramatic effect. I am also constantly seeking innovative ways to develop new techniques and new dimensions in my approach."
