Alan Chung Hung was born in Canton, China, in Feb 1946 and studied civil engineering at Chu Hai University in Hong Kong. He moved to Vancouver in 1969 and studied at the Vancouver School of Art. He was one of the founding members of the Chinese Canadian Visual Arts Society in Vancouver. Chung Hung died of cancer en route from Hong Kong to Vancouver in 1994. In the publication BC Sculptors, Chung said, "As I sit in the bush in the morning hours watching the buds grow, I become one of them - grow with them -from energy out of the earth. How strange our life is...we come from earth, return to earth but drawing life from death. I thrive on rule and order...appreciate definitions we make in our cultural history.. .. love fairy tales...fantasies...and illusions flashing across my mind! I am of the earth but growing in a fiery search of myself in contraditions and will be reborn from the ashes of desire."
