Graffiti art has opened the doors to Shah's art endeavors and how he comprehends his surroundings. His art has evolved from the angst ridden spontaneous visual execution to a more poetic approach in terms of comprehension and its outcome. He has developed what he has experienced from the earlier artistic exposure to produce a refined form of diplomacy between the clash of culture, experience, understanding and the emotion through both his academic and professional adventures.
Shah has come to grasp the poetic stance of graffiti art as an idea or a form of inspiration. Recently, he has taken an interest in performance art due to its similarity of spontaneous and its history of past controversial outlook. This particular reason in itself drives Shah to create artworks that raise certain discourses in a more interesting manner.
He believes that through the marriage of both formal education and the unorthodox street knowledge he could disseminate a different kind of visual art aesthetics and propagate a contemporary understanding of the current and future generation of Singapore artists.
