The majority of the pictures are surrealistic which, besides their romantic character, also deal with actual problems. Impressed by intense non trite colours and mystical light, they point on different topics in self specific way and leave enough space for the spectator for individual and subjective interpretations. Hereby he gets the possibilty to project own meanings to the pictures to receive them more personally which intensifies their expressiveness.
Some of his works are privately owned in the USA, Sweden, France, Germany, Holland and Poland.
Since 2005 follow many invitations to international biennials and exhibitions - Paris, Montreal, Salzburg, Strasbourg, Florence, Venice, Barcelona, Cremona...
