Tuan uses lacquer paintings as a medium to express inner feelings and emotions. His subjects are sometimes shown single, depicting loneliness or perhaps sadness. Often his paintings show a man or a woman with warm feelings for each other - or the opposite. They seem to have feelings inside which they are unable to release.

Tuan has exhibited several times abroad, such as in Japan (1996, 2000), China (1996), Germany (1997), Singapore (1997, 2000), Denmark (1998, 1999, 2000), France (1998), Argentina (1999), Laos (1999), Australia (1999), USA (1999), Thailand (1999, 2000, 2001), Israel (2000), Netherlands (2000, 2001), and Taiwan (2000).
