In 2019 with the introduction of augmented reality to his artwork linked to the Artivive app, this medium has taken him on a new journey with exhibition collaborations with the Artivive company, his participation in the 5th Ranetas VR Fest in Alcaniz, Spain and three Artivive solo exhibitions in South Africa.
In 2020 he received a place as one of the top 10 artists in the Artivive UN Peace Poster International Competition.

His search for new ideas and experimentation with new techniques, styles, and media is ongoing.
