He is also an artist, and at the beginning of 2013 his work was on display at Bristol's View Art Gallery as part of the "True Identity" exhibition. Speaking on his website, he said: My work is an on going investigation into my Chinese identity, but also the feeling of loss, a numbness of something not quite there. The aim of my work is to entice you with a simultaneity of narratives and to nurture your soul with a virtual feast of visual flavours. My desire is for you to stay awhile and converse with my ancestors and perhaps reflect, reminisce about your own family connections. Where am I from? Who am I really? What are all the conditions that caused me to exist in my present form?
