Born in 1953 in Macao and raised in Hong Kong, Foon Sham is a sculptor and a professor currently living and working in USA.
Since 1980, he had 28 solo exhibitions and participated in over 115 group exhibitions in United States as well as other countries including Canada, Norway, Mexico, Australia and Hong Kong.
Wood has always been Sham’s primary medium in his sculpture and installations. He has sawed, cut, laminated, stacked, carved and assembled a multiplicity of soft and hard wood into organic and geometric forms from small to massive pieces.
His art echoes his personal feeling to nature, disaster, and the particular environment. In his recent installations, he invited visitors to participate and share their thoughts and ideas.
