Polam was born and lived in Hong Kong and currently based in the UK. Polam’s artwork often indicates a reflection of society through individuals’ behaviour.

 

Polam’s practices investigate various elements of the city. From human interactions/emotions, architecture to social and political issues. Polam primarily focuses on his home city Hong Kong. Boundaries, Propaganda, media manipulation, and barriers create a blockage to people physically and mentally. These themes are often what he includes in his work.

 

Polam believes art will generate conversations and confront the audience with unusual ideas that one would not easily conceive by living in the system.
