The exhibit features more than 40 pieces of movie props and other items from Chan's legendary career, and they have all been re-made and transformed into works of art by 25 artists from around the world.

Chan says that over the years, he has collected many items from his movie sets that would have otherwise simply gone into the garbage after filming.

He has then shown or given them to his artist friends, who have reused them to create sculptures or other objects of new artistic value.

Chan says he is hoping to promote the ideas of recycling and environmental protection through the exhibit, which is also set to travel around the world after its showing in Shanghai.

The Hong Kong action star, who is about to turn 64 next month, has appeared in well over 200 films.

Last year, he received a Lifetime Achievement Oscar for his contribution to the film industry. He is also well known for a wide range of public service and charity projects.

The current exhibition in Shanghai can be seen in the city's World Financial Center until May 21.
