You are cordially invited to attend A Ceremony marking the Gift of a painting "Evolving into One" from Mr Chung Po Yang SBS OBE JP on 14 November 2007 (Wednesday).
Mr. Chung graduated in USA returned to Hong Kong, joined DHL Express, and co-founded its Asia Pacific division. Mr Chung has held top ranking position with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council; a doyen in international trade he assisted the University of Hong Kong set up a Centre for Asian Entrepreneurship & Business Values in January 2006. He is a committed community service leader, a social entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a patron of the arts and conservation, and now an accomplished painter.
Mr Chung's painting "Evolving into One" is one of the results deriving from his unique technique. It features superimposed mountain peaks in intense motion suggesting an amassing of youthful energies and embodies the spirits of our youths in adversity. The colours used – purple alluding the auspicious stream of "Purple Air coming from the East towards the West" and green captures the essence of success and vitality. This framed painting measuring 233cm wide and 97cm high now adorns a spacious wall in the Main Library of The University of Hong Kong, an institute where the East meets the West.
The HKU Libraries is honoured to have Mr Chung to officiate the Ceremony and present the painting to Dr Anthony W. Ferguson, University Librarian.
