New “Art in MTR” Exhibition Spreads the Message of Love Through Paintings and Photos by Talented Lady with Autism
Hong Kong, China, October 11, 2017 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Love can overcome hurdles and break through limitations. Starting from today (11 October 2017) to 8 January 2018, customers passing through MTR Sheung Wan and Sai Wan Ho stations can enjoy 16 inspiring and touching photos and watercolour paintings by Ms Chang Man-yan. Diagnosed with autism when she was one year old, Ms Chang aims to promote love and equality, and to give hope to those with special needs through her works displayed at the “Art in MTR” exhibition entitled “Love Light Me Up”.
“Sitting still to draw is easy for most people. But it took me many years to achieve this after various treatments and training. Since then, I have discovered my interests in photography and painting. I definitely hope the public will, through the feelings I shared in my artworks, gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and feelings of those with autism,” said Ms Chang. “The unconditional love and encouragement from my parents and those who have shown their love and support, act as a shining star guiding my path,” she added.
“By showcasing Ms Chang’s passion for the arts, we hope to expose the talents of people with special needs, who deserve the respect, love, attention and opportunities as everyone else in the society,” said Ms Linda So, Corporate Affairs Director of MTR Corporation.
MTR Corporation offers space at different MTR stations for temporary art exhibitions under the “Art in MTR” programme to promote artistic talent and the public’s appreciation of art. Interested artists and organisations may call the MTR Hotline on 2881 8888 to enquire, or submit their proposals directly to the MTR Corporation.
