With the generous support of Hop Wai Tong, Chung Chi College, United College and Wu Yee Sun College have jointly invited Dr. Mei-ying Chen, a Taiwan artist specialized in Chinese painting, to be this year’s Visiting Artist of Hop Wai Art & Cultural Programme and pay a visit to the colleges in October 2019.
The exhibition showcased Dr. Chen’s China Painting art pieces. Dr. Chen was born in Macau and completed secondary school in Hong Kong. She was once admitted to the Biology Department of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, but she left for Taiwan to pursue her career in medicine. She then graduated from the School of Medicine, National Taiwan University, and has been practising as an ophthalmologist since then.
Dr. Mei-ying Chen was brought up in a scholarly family while Mr. Shuren Chen, one of the three masters of the Lingnan School, was her great-granduncle. She also learned Chinese painting from Professor Lui-sang Wong, another prominent figure of the Lingnan School for almost three decades.
