When Japson Wong travelled to Semporna, Sabah to work in 2008, little did he know this experience would change his life forever. Upon his return to Kota Kinabalu in 2016, Wong was inspired by fishermen there to do upcycling work and produce artwork based on marine life to create environmental awareness among the public.

Japson Wong is one of the winners of the Star Golden Hearts Award 2023, an annual award by The Star and Yayasan Gamuda that recognises selfless Malaysian unsung heroes who make a positive impact on society and promote unity among the people.
