These truth variations in the luminosity and change of angle as well as the amount of light in the room. His images are often a mixture of relief and paintings in acrylic and oil on canvas. He served both-figurative and nonfigurative images.
Music is an important element when the works of art are produced. Beautiful spiritual music
can deepen the experience of the pictures.
