Arron’s paintings have won him Honorable Mention in Philip Morris SINGAPORE-ASEAN Art Awards 2003 and Highly-Commended in The 22nd UOB Painting Of The Year Competition 2003. He was commissioned a painting by Meritus Hotel in 2008 for their collection and publicity use. His Artworks have been exhibited in various prominent venues such as Esplanade, Singapore Art Museum, Arts House, Singapore Management University, MICA Building, Citylink and internationally in South Korea- Seoul Railway Station Old Building.

Arron's latest series of paintings question the existence of ideal beauty by juxtaposing commodified female images and real sand into his imaginative world, Withered Paradise. The use of sand and oil paints in Withered Paradise suggests the contradictions we perceived the ideal beauty to be. Beside painting, he also photographs abandons spaces and people around him as his works of art and lectures Digital Art & Photography on a part-time basis at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore.
