Lam Man Kong is a famous oil-painter with residential background in France for more than 20 years, as well as being an art critic and columnist. He is the Visiting Professor of Zhejiang Vocational Institute of Fine Arts, Chairman of Hong Kong Oil Painting Research Society, a cored artist of the Art Of Nature International Company Limited and Vice Chairman of Paris French-Chinese Artists Association.

Lam graduated from the Hong Kong Professional Fine Art Institute in 1984. In 1990, Lam furthered his studies in Paris. He graduated with a tertiary qualification in the Paris National Academy of Fine Arts. Pierre Caron, a famous Professor, complimented Lam’s sophisticated techniques and brilliant talents. For the year thereafter, Lam practiced his imitation skills inside the Louvre Museum for the sake of absorbing nutrients from the great masters, which enabled Lam to explore his unique thematic approaches and stylistic expressions. Lam's works are greatly influenced by classicism and Impressionism. He is a painter with ‘Paris style’ and his works are said to be ‘the art of human nature’ as his paintings can deeply reveal the reality of human nature.
