Nick Shen Weijun first caught the attention of TV viewers with his resounding win at the All-Asian Star Search – Singapore. Steadily, Nick gains recognition as the actor with multiple talents. A singer, host and an actor not just on TV but on stage as a stage actor, more interestingly, as an opera artiste.
Teochew Opera may be passe to some of his contemporaries but Nick holds a deep interest and appreciation for this nostalgic art form that is fast losing its audience. His passion and hard work have seen him through commendable public and charitable performances as well as representing Singapore to perform in countries like Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Brunei, Malaysia and Shanghai for the 2012 Shanghai International Arts Festival.
 
With his feet firmly planted on the grounds, he strives to do better each time. Nick is the first actor in Singapore to master the unique art of Mask Changing. For the past two years, Nick has been in the guidance of a professional Mask Changing Master from China, learning through practice on the art of Mask Changing. Nick only started performing Mask Changing on stage earlier this year in April. With his creativity, he is able to promote Chinese Opera and Mask Changing performance in a hybrid genre fusing western magic techniques with the traditional chinese opera dance. Watch Nick strut his stuff and how he makes an impression. Now, meet Nick – the performer, opera artiste and magician.
 
In 2011 Nick started his own events company “Tok Tok Chiang Arts and Culture Events Management” providing his services from being an opera artiste to a fun loving host in his most affable ways. Tok Tok Chiang also plans and conceptualizes cultural events for corporate companies, museums, shopping centres and schools. In 2012, he became the Grassroot leader of Tampines and is the committee of Community Arts and Culture Clubs. This year 2013, he was nominated for the “Top Outstanding Young Persons of the World Awards- Singapore 2013″ in the cultural achievement category. Nick is also the Singapore’s Youth Ambassador.
