He began to explore oil painting since 1958, an artistic journey of over 60 years so far. Though self-taught, his fresh, unique style and perspective were greatly admired by the art circle, and he successfully showcased his works in invited exhibitions (1962 – 1969) and Annual Art Exhibitions (1984 – 1985) at the National Art Gallery. His works were selected for the ‘Contemporary Art in Asia’ exhibition in 1965 and the ‘Salon Malaysia’ art exhibition in 1968.
