His work has been exhibited all over the world including the Louvre Paris, Triennale Milan, Peru, Korea, USA and many more.

About the photo: Personally I have had a life changing event from a family member having mental health issues when I was a child. It could have turned into something very negative for me and I could have gone down a very dark path. However, I decided to turn it into something positive for myself and it made me a stronger person. So I would not change my childhood for anything. It made me who I am today. The advice I would give to someone who has a family member or friend who has mental health issues: You can look at the dark or the light.
