Lam Ka Fai painted various types of fish with different styles in the past few years. His interest in fish roots from his love of the ocean. The ocean is bigger than our imagination and even scientists struggle to explain the reason behind. There is a huge difference between fish and human, be it their appearance, language and living environment—a human cannot live in water while fish cannot live in the land. He likes to use fish as a symbol of the connection between the real world and his imagination. In the process, Lam explores the relationship between fish and human, finding beauty in our daily life. In his eyes, the mystery of the ocean is like that of the universe. There are many scientists who want to solve the mystery of the ocean. Although Lam is unable to do what scientists do, he uses paint as a medium to present the beauty of the ocean. It just likes a puzzle, his work contains answer the audience can seek out. The process of it is just like what we are doing every day—discover the beauty of our world.
