First Chinese artistic achievement art exhibition, Fishers Ghost Art Award, Clifton Art prize and Miradas international Art Prize. In 2018 he received highly commended prize at Bayside art prize.

In Fangmin's works, there are not only deep thoughts and reflections of Chinese culture but also the exploration of western culture. His artistic style emphasizes the subjective feelings of the individual and the expressiveness of the picture's emotion to evoke the resonance and interpretation of the viewer. His works have been widely collected, both privately and public, notably by the N.S.W. Nepean Public Hospital and Australian National Gallery.
