Cheung’s touch may seem simple but behind the simplicity are intricate carvings of archaic forms and cryptic symbols which illustrates various narratives. Be it an ancient Chinese poem of a distant past, writings, story-telling figurines of legends, engraved fortune telling tortoises or I-Ching hexagram patterns, it is these profound features that sets him apart from other artists, drawing the attention of art aficionados.
