Synopsis

Tom Lau was born in Hong Kong in 1967.  He has been working as a fine artist and illustrator for over two decades and has won or been a finalist in several international competitions.  His exhibition of oil paintings on canvas, “Beside The Portraits”, presents the varied thoughts, stories and souls in each portrait through his unique interpretation of classical painting techniques.

Innovative classical and contemporary painting techniques catch the eye of the audience and the artist.  There’s a story behind everyone, and Tom Lau aims to bring out the truth in his portraits of people and the things around them.  Ranging from his earlier acrylic paintings to his more recent oil paintings, this exhibition shows the development of the artist’s thoughts and techniques.Innovative classical and contemporary painting techniques catch the eye of the audience and the artist.  There’s a story behind everyone, and Tom Lau aims to bring out the truth in his portraits of people and the things around them.  Ranging from his earlier acrylic paintings to his more recent oil paintings, this exhibition shows the development of the artist’s thoughts and techniques.
