Tang’s work can be found in such collections as the Seattle Art Museum, the Ariana Muse in Geneva SW, Canada House in London (UK) and the Art Bank of Canada.
Tang dedicates his full attention to his professional art practice in Vancouver BC, where he continues to explore the interface between culture and material.
