Heidi Lai

Heidi Lai is a self taught oil painting artist from Hong Kong. She has a Bachelor of Architecture from UNSW in 2010. Her first solo exhibition at Brunswick Street Gallery in Melbourne in March 2023 was a significant milestone, followed by a group exhibition at Aspire Gallery, Brisbane where her artwork received the People’s Choice Award in March 2023. She first exhibited in The Other Art Fair Sydney in May and October 2023.

Lai wants to explore how the minorities in the world navigate their daily existence and their interconnections. Within the tapestry of their unique community, often challenging for outsiders to grasp, lies a profound beauty and complexity that invites us to recognize the rich diversity within the fabric of everyday life.
