Stephen Lai was born in Hong Kong in 1960. He has a diploma in surface design/print from the Ontario College of Art.
His studies and working experience in the wall-covering industry were fundamental in forging his penchant for simple, minimalistic, pattern-like images. Being creative is the essence of his everyday life. He uses long exposures in digital and analogue 120 black and white film format to achieve the look and feel of capturing time. Often taken in the soft light of dusk and dawn, his evocative exposures can span several minutes and produce images that fuse the past and the present.
