His works, apart from exhibitions in galleries and art spaces, have also been immortalised in books which have been used for collection as well as text books by some institutions. His artworks can be seen in the collections of such institutions including the National Art Gallery of Malaysia, Petronas Gallery, Central Bank of Malaysia and many other private and public international collections. His popular works and unique technique makes Kon Yit very much one of the few watercolour artists of Asia. It is very easy to recognise Kon Yit’s work because the images projected are seen as soft and featuring very vibrant colours.
