糊塗里了解到，為了保持業界中的領先地位，藝廊需要擴展到 3D、VR 和 AR 等藝術形式。於是很快就成立一個新部門，並立即開啟一系列的活動，特別是與該地區大學合作的孵化計劃，旨在為這些未來的藝術形式培養年輕人才。
Dotard Village understood that in order to stay ahead of the industry, the gallery needed to expand into 3D, VR and AR art form. A new department was quickly formed and immediately launched a series of activities notably an incubation program in collaboration with Universities within the region. Aiming to develop and nurture young talents for this upcoming art form.
糊塗里的願景很快引起許多藝術評論家和機構投資者的注意。結果，第一個受委託的自學沙龍藝術家D.G Lampaulus，在第一個月的展覽中，他整個系列的作品就以 36 萬美元的價格被搶先標下。
Dotard Village’s vision quickly drew attention of many art critics and institutional investors. As a result, it’s very first commissioned self-taught salon artist’s D.G Lampaulus’ entire collection was scooped up for 360k USD within its first month’s exhibition.
D.G Lampaulus 是一位在香港長大、才華洋溢的自學藝術家。他出生在一個資源有限的家庭，卻有著無限的藝術天賦。他曾在多個社區藝術比賽中獲得優異的成績，但為了減輕家庭的經濟負擔，以及實現父母的期望，不得不放棄成為專業藝術家的熱情。
D.G Lampaulus is a talented self taught artist who grew up in Hong Kong. He was borne into a family with limited resources but gifted with unlimited talent in art. He was accoladed with distinction awards in several community art competitions but had to forego his passion to become a professional artist for the sake of relieving family financial burden and parents’ expectations.
D.G Lampaulus 努力在澳洲、美國持續深造，最終在比利時取得金融博士學位。他的努力獲得了回報，很快成為金融界的一顆閃亮的明星，服務於《財富》雜誌中的全球500大企業，從事企業併購和首次公開發行股票等業務。
D.G Lampaulus worked hard and eventually topped furthered his studies in Australia, U.S and finally got his finance doctorate in Belgium. His hard work paid off and soon became a shinning star in the finance sector serving the fortune 500s specializing in mergers and acquisition as well as IPO-ing.
2020 是動盪的一年，Covid-19 摧毀了許多經濟體，讓世界失去了控制。另一方面，D.G Lampaulus 期待著他的第一個孩子，這位從天而降的天使提醒他，在如此混亂的時期，仍保有生命和希望。
2020 was a year of turmoil with Covid-19 devastating many economies and spinning the world out of control. D.G Lampaulus on the other hand was expecting his first child, an angel sent from heaven to remind him that in times of chaos, there is life and hope.
The series of events put his light speed life momentum to a stop but also provided him a calmed and clear state of mind. He started to ponder the meaning of life and what to gift to his child.
One day he picked up his paint brushes and painted. He painted his child, his philosophical views on life, men’s inter relations and role in the universe. Each painting had a deep meaningful verse like was texted to him from another dimension.
His work is vibrant in color, packed with emotion and at the same time leaving a lot to imagine. Many critics actually reviewed that the works showed glimpsed of resemblance on trending mainstream artists like Yoshitomo Nara and Javier Calleja.
糊塗里對 D.G Lampaulus 的賭注是正確的，並接受了他即將推出的三個藝術系列的委託。畫廊和藝術家接下來要展出的作品，非常令人興奮和期待。
Dotard Village was right betting on D.G Lampaulus and commissioned his upcoming three series of art. What the gallery and artist has to offer next is very exciting and much anticipated.
