Inkgo Lam graduated from the department of Fine Arts at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2014. She is an apprentice of the renowned Hong Kong bamboo steamer Master Lui Ming and aspires to create contemporary bamboo crafts with traditional techniques.
In 2019, Inkgo met Master Lui Ming through The Jockey Club ICH+ Innovative Heritage Education Programme. In 2021, Inkgo’s bamboo artworks were exhibited at Art Basel Hong Kong and in 2022, her works were featured in Hong Kong, Japan, and Canada, including the exhibition “Beyond Borders: Traces of Hong Kong Stories”.
Since childhood, Inkgo has admired the perseverance of traditional craftsmen and has been fascinated by the attitude of “focusing on one thing for a lifetime”. She hopes to continue the traditions of heritage crafts in Hong Kong and transform bamboo into the language of art, bringing the aesthetics of ancient Chinese art to the contemporary stage.
