Initially started as a printmaker in 1998, Ivan Lam uses the silkscreen technique “as a means to create works that dealt with colour fields and reflected international issues”. In 2005, having mastered the silkscreen technique, he produced a new body of work titled CMYK series consisting of 10 pieces resulting in the artist being regarded as the country’s most relevant contemporary printmaker. Illustrated here is an example of his mastery in screen print technique on black canvas depicting an abstract circular blue and brown shape with floral motifs in red, yellow and brown.
