All works signifying the approach to finally reveal a new reality, one, evolving from his artistic autonomy. Graphic elements, the cleanness in expression, emphatic circulating lines, excessive and meddlesome pure colors are constitutive elements of his compositions. Free from traditionalism or trends of contemporary art, he feverishly announces his world of fine art and varying forms of expression. Numerous of his works are in private property.
