Dan Lam and the Cosmic Shake
Dan Lam’s fourth solo exhibition Cosmic Shake at Chefas Projects is an exclamation of her mesmerizing sculptures and this time around, she’s elevated the bar to new heights exploring and creating new shapes and textures. Culminating her artistic expression, Dan’s launched a refreshing new bold visual language and has pushed her personal boundaries to outer-limits with this show.
“Through this exhibition, I am delving into my complete visual vocabulary while also enhancing it. I am introducing new textures to familiar shapes and exploring established textures on fresh shapes. This exhibition provides me with the opportunity to express my artistic language fully, which I haven't been able to do before. My aim is to continuously push the limits of my creativity and explore the endless possibilities,” says Dan.
Fans, old and new, of her work will no doubt be tetched and owner of Chefas Projects, Stepanie Chefas is delighted to bolster Dan’s work for a fourth time, and says, “Dan Lam walks the line between numerous dichotomies to uncover new modes of expression. By navigating the realm between attraction and repulsion, motion and stillness, seriousness and playfulness, softness and hardness, Lam wields magic power over each idiosyncratic vision. The experimentation remains palpable, but the work is never so abstract as to disengage. Compelled by these seemingly disparate juxtapositions, the viewer is overcome with a range of complex emotions and creative ideas.”
Internationally acclaimed, prominent contemporary artist and social media Influencer; Dan Lam is an artist based out of Texas, US. Lam’s sculptural work expresses and plays with sensational dichotomies by combining unconventional materials, organic forms, and bright colors.

Her experimentation results in beautiful sculptures created with various materials such as foams, polyurethanes, resins, acrylics, and polymers, which defines her style. She has exhibited worldwide, and celebrity clients include Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, The Game, and Lily Aldridge.
