Zoie Lam

Zoie Lam is an artist based in Hong Kong. As the creator of the imaginary planet Zlism, she details a world with all its residents and happenings. Positive energy oozes out from the kind-hearted characters as they come alive under her pen, all with fascinating stories unfolding in one painting after another. “ZL” is the initial of Zoie Lam while “LISM” stands for her philosophy and ideas. Through her drawings, Zoie would like to express her ideas on different social phenomena.

Most of the artworks by Zoie Lam appear as a dense and intricate tapestry of patterns juxtaposed with vivid colours – a remarkable visual contrast for a signature style that sets Lam apart from the rest. Choosing acrylic paint and wool yarn, and occasionally oil-based marker and technical drawing pen for black-and-white effect, Lam always fills her stylistic paintings in brilliant hues and and flourescent colours. All details are completed with refined brushstrokes and delicate lines under the fine pen tip. The canvas is then topped with hand-knitted finishing touches. Another favourite art form of her’s is mural painting, which includes walls of shops and impromptu painting alongside real-time animation and performance. She has been invited to showcase her art at Busan Art Fair, Affordable Art Fair and Asia Contemporary Art Fair. Zoie has also worked with different institutions and companies including various schools, HK Arts Development Council, Haven of Hope Hospital, CR2 903, Harbour City, Elements, PMQ, Vans, and others.
