Originally from Hong Kong, Hei Lam Ng is a multidisciplinary artist currently based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Her work spans photography, printmaking and book art. An anterior background in Chinese creative writing often adds a subtle poetic touch to Hei Lam’s art practice. These backgrounds fuse into a medium-specific approach of artistic practice that often further enhance the context. The loss and acquisition of identity in situations of displacement is often a central theme of her work.

Hei Lam’s latest practice focuses on experimental printmaking, text art and book objects. In 2020, she established Bocchi – an independent vanity press that specializes in small run, custom made artist book projects.
