Worked as a teacher at the former State Taipei School for Blind and Mute People (currently the Taipei City Deaf School).

Four personal exhibitions and many group exhibitions. Exhibited at a Japan-Korea Contemporary Art Exhibition, an A-21 International Art Exhibition, and exhibitions in Poland, France, and Germany.

A representative work of his concrete paintings is the stately “Two naked women in front of a mirror.” “Nostalgia,” which was the work that led him to expand his range to abstract painting, was received favorably for its interaction of geometric components of nostalgia with color and vivid expression.
