Being a perceptive observer in his daily life, his love for words and writing, Jude’s best-love is to transcribe words into visual interpretations.
His personal visual style preference deviates towards transforming realism into surrealism through the ability of manipulating light and shadow, cinematic shots of subject matter, multiple exposure, abstract image manipulation, creatively interweaving all the elements into the most dreamy and surreal piece of visual poetry, which is not only aesthetically pleasing but often also metaphorical.
Chen’s expression of his inner thoughts conveyed exquisitely by his way of capturing images and visuals, his works are like beautifully written poems, profound, visually magnificent and unconventional.
