The “Puzzle City x Comer ─ Double Solo Exhibition by Bunny Lai x Julia Lam” will be inaugurated on Saturday, 1 April, at 12pm, at the Lakeside Gallery at the Anim’Arte NAM VAN, featuring a number of oil paintings and illustrations by two local young female artists. The exhibition runs until 7 May. The public is welcome to attend and support local artworks.

The exhibition is jointly organized by the Cultural Affairs Bureau and the Macau Artist Society. The artworks in the exhibition “Puzzle City” by Bunny Lai mainly explore the social features of the times and express the awareness of social changes. The “puzzle” represents the characteristics of old buildings in Macao, bringing out urban architecture as one of the characteristics of the city; while buildings constructed in different period of time reflect the distinctive features of the city at that time. Local artist Bunny Lai obtained a degree in visual arts at the Macao Polytechnic Institute. She has participated in various exhibitions, including the “Macao Annual Visual Arts Exhibition”, the “Collective Exhibition of Macao Artists” and the “56th Venice Art Biennale” in Italy. She won the “3rd Orient Foundation Art Award”, and her works have been collected by the Orient Foundation. Her first solo exhibition was held in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2015.

The exhibition “Comer” by Julia Lam is themed on Macanese cuisine. This year she was invited by the Yun Yi Arts and Cultural Communication Association to draw illustrations for Cecilia Jorge’s upcoming book, Colors in the Pot. The illustrations will be showcased in this exhibition. Lam hopes the audience can take rest at mealtime amid the busy daily life and enjoy the unique flavours of Macao’s abundant food ingredients. Lam is a graduate of the Academy of Art and Design at the Tsinghua University.  She loves sketching as well as watercolour and oil painting, and she uses her brush to record the changes of a city. She is also keen on art education for children. She has published a series of watercolour postcards “Festive Macao”, and her paintings have been collected by the Macao Museum of Art and some private collectors. Her works have also been exhibited in many places.

The exhibition is open daily from 11am to 10pm at the Lakeside Gallery - S2 Room in Anim’Arte NAM VAN, located at Nam Van Lakeside Plaza, Avenida Panorâmica do Lago Nam Van. The exhibition is open to the general public and the artworks are available for sale.
