Born in Hong Kong (1978) and raised in Nigeria and Thunder Bay, he holds an Honours BFA in painting from the University of Waterloo (2002). His recent project, "Horror Fables", uses imagery from traditional Asian ghost tales, Buddhist hell scrolls, ancient bestiaries, Hong Kong vampire films and the Sino-Japanese War to satirize the climate of fear in contemporary culture. In 2005, he was awarded the Joseph S. Stauffer Prize from the Canada Council for the Arts for most outstanding young visual artist. His work is held by the Canada Council Art Bank, Le Centre d'exposition de Baie-Saint-Paul and the City of Ottawa.
