Enter the World of Jimmy Liao

Mr. Jimmy Liao, a world renowned picture book author, spoke on ‘Creation through Illustration; My Passion’ for the Shun Hing Lecture in Arts and Humanities co-organized by CUHK and the Shun Hing Group on 10 January. The event drew a full house of about 1,500 CUHK staff and students, alumni and members of the public. Mr. Liao talked about how he embarked on a journey of art by accident and how serious illness triggered deeper thoughts on life and shaped the direction of his creation. His vivid presentation on his unusual experience is like his artwork, a brew of happiness and sadness.
