Mei Lam So is an artist and printmaker from Wisconsin, who is currently enrolled in the printmaking graduate program at the University of Iowa. In 2018, she graduated with distinction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Fine Arts focusing in printmaking and drawing.

Mei Lam’s work focuses on the integration and disintegration of identity within the context of cultural and familial relationships. She explores topics surrounding the acculturation process of bicultural Asian immigrants; particularly, how others navigate and integrate their own conflicting values and beliefs. Using printmaking, Mei Lam creates narratives that share her experiences of being a bicultural individual and its perennial condition of balancing various identities.
