He uses his characteristic form inspired by pop-art, but not entirely. He refers the style of poster, adverts, using strong contrasts of pure colours, at the same time enhancing the graphics style of the presentation with a broad, painterly gesture. He combines decorativeness with the expression of a patch of colour. The aesthetics of his paintings is not controversial one can say: nice painting.
