The creator of the imaginary planet zlism, Zoie Lam, details a world with all its residents and happenings. Posi1ve energy oozes out from the kindhearted characters as they come alive under her pen, all with fascina1ng stories unfolding in one pain1ng aber another.
Most of the artworks by Zoie Lam appear as a dense and intricate tapestry of pacerns juxtaposed with vivid colours — a remarkable visual contrast for a signature style that sets Lam apart from the rest. Choosing acrylic paint and wool yarn, and occasionally oil-base marker and technical drawing pen for blackand-white effect, Lam always fills her stylistic paintings in brilliant hues and especially with florescent colours. All details are completed with refined brushstrokes and delicate lines under the fine pen. The canvas is then topped with hand-kniced finishing touches. Her another favourite medium is wall painting, which includes walls of shops and impromptu painting alongside real-time animation and performance.
Topping it all off, she has been invited to paint on Converse sneakers and design the fridge surface for N*ICE POPS. She believes that whether collaborating with different brands, or drawing on unique objects and materials for all sorts of occasions, these are challenges which she enjoys experimenting to break new boundaries. There are imaginary creatures modelled on peanut and other food, as well as those from the Food Planet, who all share the limelight all through her paintings. Lam, for example, likes to present the inner thoughts of one of the central characters — the flat-headed, plump eggplant. By incorporating positive messages and vibrant colours into her artworks, she hopes to bring smiles and encourage posi1ve thoughts for everyone to continue fighting for their dreams.
