Then, in 2010 he received scholarships to attend UCLA's graduate program in Design Media Arts but left to work full-time in 2012.
Professionally, Tseng has written software for media companies in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. From 2013 to 2017 he was employed as an engineer at Mashable, a U.S. media site.
In 2017, Tseng left the workspace for University of Oxford in England, where he attended as an MFA student at the Ruskin School of Art.
Rexy Tseng extends his creative practice internationally, having had multiple exhibitions in the U.S., Germany, Hungary, Italy, Finland, Iceland, China, Japan, and Taiwan.

Residency Work 驻地作品
This work alludes to the oppression of Asian masculinity in American society. Asians in American media are often portrayed in a marginalized light, and Asian men are seen as sexless, invisible, or lacking mature appeal. In pursuit of work-life stability or the so-called American Dream, Asian immigrants and descendants quietly accept secondary social status. Although they are known as the model minority in the United States, the reality implies a racial discrepancy.
