Bogie is known for his unique style and medium, in which he combines collage with paint. He coined his method "Collaint". The method involves covering the canvas with soft hand-made paper and then painting over it using acrylics or oils, with additional layering of the paper during the process of painting. This technique produces a delicate contrast between paper and paint. Bogie has participated in many local and overseas exhibitions and his paintings are in the collection of the National Museum of Singapore.
