CHINO LAM



CHINO LAM

Hong Kong | B.1978

Chino Lam rose to prominence in the 2010s as part of the new generation of local artists exploring the relationship between fine art and pop culture. Combining elements from street art and graphic design onto his artistic creations, Chino's unique visual style captures the hearts of many, making him one of the most popular emerging contemporary artists in Asia.

Driven by his passion for sashimi and Japanese folklores, Chino created a series of original aquatic creatures, including his signature character Jiro, a tuna fish with human attributes. He daringly experiments with traditional mediums such as Chinese calligraphy and Japanese Ukiyo-e by adding a contemporary element to his works, evoking a sense of mismatched aesthetic, emanating a distinct aura that reminisces with street culture spiced up with dark humor. In his recent works, Chino explores his fascination with ancient civilizations and post-truth politics, expanding the depth while exploring the possibility of other media in his selection of works.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Chino started his artistic journey in street art, learning under Hong Kong's graffiti legend MC Yan. He then went on to study design and worked for the renowned Japanese toy brand Bandai after he graduated. In 2018, he was awarded "Artist of the Year" in the Designer Toy Awards, the "Oscar" in the toy industry. He is also one of the founders of Mame Moyashi. He now lives and works in Hong Kong.


林輝 於二零一零年間冒起,成為新一代遊走於流行文化與藝術之間的本地藝術家。他是玩具品牌 Mame Moyashi 的創始人之一,亦曾為日本玩具廠品牌Bandai出任香港設計師。於二零一七至二零一八年間,他更榮獲玩具界奧斯卡級殊榮——美國玩具大獎,在玩具業間頗受肯定。

Chino喜愛魚生和水生物,因此他創作了一系列揉合了人類特徵的海洋生物,而他的代表作角色山椒魚「JIRO 次郎」正是其中一員。 除了製作搪膠玩具,他也有以傳統媒介如浮世繪和書法創作的作品。當這些傳統的元素遇上Chino創作的趣怪角色時,便產生出一種荒誕的錯置美學,使這些水生物隱含著詼諧的黑色幽默,也具有街頭文化的風格。

Chino別樹一幟的構思虜獲了很多人的喜愛,使他的作品於短時間內橫掃亞洲玩具舞台。
