Kelvin Chap has an an intense fascination for the Borneo tribal culture and symbolisms, which are always present in all his artworks. Even in Celebration he incorporates a clash of fluorescent colours. His works often depict a social commentary; the overlapping of tradition and culture with modernisation, of how they clash, and the portrayal of a society that is too eager to accept urbanisation, so much so that the lines are blurred and almost obscure the original culture identity.
