Tshun is Chinese but was born in Indonesia. His grandparents moved to Indonesia from China in the 1930s. Tshun spent his youth in lush jungles and on the pure white sandy beaches of the Java Sea and the South Pacific. These colors and surroundings would later become the inspiration for his work.
In 1998 a crisis economy swept through Indonesia creating unrest. Many of the Chinese people were the target of hatred by the native Indonesians. Tshun once had to hide in an attic for 10 days until the rioting stopped.
He eventually found refuge in America and now lives in south Florida with his partner. It is here that he's able to continue producing his sculptural artwork. Tshun is an internationally collected artist.
