Psychology Student Shared Happiness through Light Painting - Jun 2014 

Adrien Warren TANG, Year 3 student of BSc (Hons) Psychology and local representative of Light Painting World Alliance (LPWA) “Light painting, a rather uncommon photography, is a selfexpressive art like drawing. Each piece of my works records different life moments. After four years of diligent drill, I am so proud of having my very own style of light calligraphy – using torches to paint names and offer my blessings to the others, as I long to bring happiness to people around me. Knowing that sharing is a virtue, I believe in a proverb that says ‘Shared Happiness is Double Happiness’.”
