Norm Yip (葉灃) was born in Canada in 1963 by Chinese parents. After studying fine art in Saskatchewan and architecture in Toronto, he moved to Hong Kong where began working as an architect. In 1999, he decided to transition into fine art and photography, following his deeper passion into his personal interests. He formed a collective called Melo-Melo Artist Alliance with several friends. It was then that his journey into art began. Oscillating between photography as a main source of income and painting as a hobby, he began to assert more attention and time to the latter. He has exhibited mostly in Hong Kong in group exhibitions, yet has recently exhibited in Zurich, Switzerland and The Other Art Fair in New York.
Norm Yip (葉灃) received his Bachelor of Arts degree (cum laude) in 1984 at the University of Saskatchewan and a Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1989 at the University of Toronto.
