Dr. Yip Lai Lam   (Oct 21, 2003, photos by Lamma-Gung & Dr. Yip)



You might have noticed the paintings of Lamma exhibited in the Lamma ferry pier in Central, in the waiting area along the iron grids separating the Yung Shue Wan and Sok Kwu Wan ferry piers?


Via the HK & Kowloon Ferry company, I managed to get in touch with the artist, Dr. Yip. He's a retired professor, Qigong master, a man of many talents, with more letters after his name than most people I know: BSc. PhD. MIEnv Sc. Cert. Ed. Ad. Dip. Qigong, Cert. Psychoneuroimmunology.


His paintings, just a hobby he claims, are a mix of Western watercolours and Chinese brush stroke technique. They've been given to the ferry co. for free for an open-ended, long-time exhibition. He's not eager to sell them, but if you'd really like to own one, or meet this very pleasant & wise artist, email him!


Artist info: "Dr. David Yip Lai Lam was born in 1937 in Hong Kong. In his early years, before going abroad to further his studies in England and in North America, he apprenticed under artist Wong Hai and had attended various famous artists' demonstrations such as Mr. Wong Po-yeh. Dr. Yip took advantage of the unique opportunity of his studies abroad to visit many museums and galleries. For years, Dr. Yip worked as a senior Lecturer in a local higher institution while privately engaged in non-professional artist pursuits.


In 1996, he held his first one-man show entitled "The Anti-Japanese War" in Vancouver. Another more recent show "Illusory War-Ridden Life" was held in the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence in 2001. He is a former part-time lecturer in Zen & Qigong Therapy at the Open University of Hong Kong and a member of the Vancouver Chinese Artists Society in Vancouver, Canada".
