An extensive and complex oeuvre of different creative orientations came into being over the course of the past 20 years (influence of classical modernism as a starting point; development under the influence of Cubism toward abstraction and ornamentation).
The gallery of this site presents a representative selection of his work, a multiplicity of large-format pictures in oil, acrylics and in mixed technique.
With the exception of a few exhibitions, his artistic work has remained unknown to the broader public for the most part up to now.
The artist is now seeking ways of public relations to make his work better known to the public.
Options include art exhibitions in galleries, art fairs and alternative forms of exhibiting.
