His works were exhibited over the years in many countries and are also part of permanent collections from museums and galleries around the world, as well as private collectors in China, Asia, the United States of America, Europe and South America.
The pieces now on display result from the integration of Chinese ink painting with Western painting. The exhibition can be seen until October 31st at the Rui Cunha Foundation Gallery.
