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. He is one of the founders of the brand Mame Moyashi and once worked for the renowned Japanese toy brand Bandai. In 2017 and 2018, he was awarded the "Oscar" in the toy industry, American Toy Award "Designer Toy Awards ".
Driven by his passion for sashimi and aquatic creatures, he created a series of original characters featuring sea animals with human attributes, including his signature character Jiro. When rendered with traditional mediums such as calligraphy and Ukiyo-e, these cute and monstrous creatures evoke a sense of mismatched aesthetic, emanating a distinct aura that reminisces with street culture spiced up with dark humor.
Lam's unique graphic style and fascinating imagination resonates with and captures the hearts of many and the popularity of his works in Asia rocketed within a short time frame.
林輝（Chino Lam）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「Designer Toy Awards」，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。
