He is a watercolour, oil and acrylic painter, best known for his vivid landscape paintings inspired by extensive travels around the world and his compelling abstract works.

Among his teachers, he counts Georgette Chen and Cheong Soo Pieng—both pioneering Nanyang style artists—as having the most significant influence on his art.
