Professor Dominic Lam wins recognition for outstanding achievement in art development

林文傑教授創意藝術貢獻獲頒傑出成就獎

Professor Dominic Lam, Fung Hon Chu Endowed Chair of Humanics of HKBU’s Institute of Creativity, has been dedicated to using his artistic talent and scientific knowledge for the development of art, science, community service and the medical sector. He was presented with an Outstanding Achievement Award at the charity dinner of the 9th Hong Kong Arts and Design Festival 2013 organised by the Hong Kong Communication Art Centre in recognition of his excellent contribution to art development over the years.

Professor Lam is an artist, a scientist, an ophthalmologist and a biotechnology entrepreneur. His vision is to support the visual arts and social welfare work through his artistic achievements and scientific research, thereby bringing more happiness to both himself and the world.

Professor Lam has staged numerous solo exhibitions all over the world and was recognised with various international honours and awards, such as being selected as one of “the 99 most accomplished and influential artists in China in the 20th century” by the Chinese Academy of Art, The Artist Association of China and the National Palace Museum of China, and being named one of “the eight most important artists in Hong Kong history” by the founding Chief Curator of the Hong Kong Museum of Art.

The Hong Kong Arts and Design Festival is an important annual event in the local art circle. In addition to the annual awards such as Ten Outstanding Designer Awards and Outstanding Greater China Design Awards, three new awards were established this year to recognise art practitioners in different categories, namely Outstanding Achievement Award, Outstanding Design Dedication Award and Eco Designer Award.

浸大創意研究院馮漢柱基金全人教育教授林文傑教授憑著他的創意藝術思維和科學成就,致力推動藝術、科學、慈善和醫學的發展,早前在香港傳藝中心舉辦的第九屆「香港傳藝節2013」的慈善晚宴上獲頒「傑出成就大獎」,特別表揚林教授多年來對藝術發展的卓越貢獻。

林教授集藝術家、科學家、眼科專家和生物工程企業家於一身,他的理想是以個人的視覺藝術和科學成果支持視覺藝術和其他公益事務,為自己及大眾帶來更多歡樂。

林教授曾於世界各地舉辦個人藝術展覽,並獲得多個國際榮譽和獎項,包括獲中國美術家協會、中央美術學院及北京故宮博物院評選為二十世紀中國畫壇上「最具代表性與影響力的九十九位中國藝術家」之一,以及獲香港藝術館創館館長選為香港歷史上最具代表性的「八位大師」之一。

香港傳藝節是本地藝術界的年度盛事,今年首度增設「傑出成就大獎」、「傑出設計貢獻大獎」和「環保設計師大獎」,以表彰不同範疇的藝術工作者,同場亦頒發「十大傑出設計師大獎」、「大中華傑出設計大獎」等多個年度獎項。
