Updated: Sep 8, 2022

The BOAX LamIan Metaverse features all of the collaboration between Dr. Lam and Mr. Wen in NFT form. Being a notable scientist, doctor, academic, educator, philanthropist, and artist, Dr. Dominic Lam invented Chromoskedasic Art - a new art discipline through chemical processes; and together with Mr. Ian Wen, the founder and CEO of BOAX, they have created some beautiful NFT artworks including “Olympic Happiness”, “Original IZBLU Bulls X Nine Palace”, “Voyage of Discovery: Universe - The Big Bang”, and many more.


Olympic Happiness NFT by Dr. Lam and Mr. Ian Wen

The theme of the Olympic Happiness NFT is From People to Peace to People, symbolised by the transition from the human element in the NFT to the peace dove, and back to the human element. Featuring the transition from human element in the NFT to the peace dove, and back to the human element, the theme of the Olympic Happiness NFT is From People to Peace to People. It was based on the painting by Dr. Lam originally created for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2004 to symbolize the wish of “Peace for the World and Happiness for all People”, where he integrated the logo of the Olympic Games (the five rings representing the continents) with Chinese calligraphy, and the result represents the Chinese character “樂” which means happiness) to further emphasize on global harmony, art and sports across cultures without borders.



Original IZBLU Bulls X Nine Palace

Among the works of Dr. Dominic Man-Kit Lam, a Hong Kong-based internatioal artisit, the worlds of modern art, scientific discovery, and technology are intertwined. Dr.Lam's art reveals new ways of seeing the world from personal and comical perspective. Dr. Lam’s Nine Court Diagram is a set of nine square Chromoskedasic paintings arranged in a three-by-three grid. Nine Palaces predate the “I Ching”, the “Ba Gua”, and the “Luo Shu” but share many of the same attributes. The colors, surface patterning, texture, tonal range, and definition of each of Lam’s segments relate to these attributes. The eight cardinal and secondary points of the compass are arranged around the outside. At the center is Earth, the place where every living thing resides. This is a joint collaboration between Dr. Lam and Mr. Ian Wen. Mr. Wen created the IZBLU Bulls and superimposed the bulls on the Nine Palace with Dr. Lam's artistic guidance and co-created the NFT to represent the bullish spirit, or in Chinese "牛氣沖天". The owner of this NFT will receive a high resolution printed copy with the creators' signatures. Part of the proceeds from this NFT will go to charitable causes.

It commemorated the 40th anniversary of man's first landing on the moon.


Bright colours and multi-layered compositions were used to depict the passage of time and space. Moving from left to right, it shows the beginning of the universe through the tricolored explosive ball of energy. This phenomenon is preceded by a transition of atoms to form huge, vibrant clouds of gas, which turns into a scintillating collection of stars.


Dr. Lam also interweaved moons into his piece, which is a derivation of his series of "eye" paintings, whereby the implementation of his Chromoskedasic art technique transforms "eyes" into "stars". This voyage parallels the progressively darkening colours, which represents the end of the universe.
