Chau Lam 鄒琳

Chau came to Hong Kong in 1979. He had worked as artistic designer before he became professional artist in 1993. He specializes in human portrait. His works include paintings, charcoal drawings, and sketches. Chau thinks that the impression of workmanship on charcoal portraits, the colours of folk crafts and string music in his hometown have all inspired his art. With the support of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, Chau held his solo exhibition and published his album The Rhythmic Soul: The Portraits Paintings of Chau Lam in 1999.
