Prior to joining LASALLE, he taught fine arts and digital media at different levels of diploma, undergraduate and supervisory postgraduate programmes in Austria, Australia, China, Singapore and the US.

Lam Fung has been an adjunct lecturer with LASALLE’s BA (Hons) programme since 2019, with an interdisciplinary studio practice that spans painting, printmaking, performance and new media/sculptural installation, as well as management and organisational portfolio across both public and private sectors.

His work explores the possibilities of extended material and space practices and the integration of media techniques.

Lam Fung draws his aesthetic approach to art from transcontinental experiences and finds inspiration from history, memories, current events, myths and rituals. His artwork surrounds topics in power, spirit resonance, migration and environmental ethics through direct cross-culture observations and contemporary events.

An impressive span of three decades of his academic and artistic journey has taken Lam Fung through different countries, cultures and philosophies. This has enabled Lam Fung’s artistic approach to possess a valuable international perspective.
