The author seems to disintegrate the world into small elements (the fundamental particles equivalent to letters and sounds) which he then analyzesand combinesinto the complex forms. The artist’s mind begets the pictures that are full of symbolical meaningand tragic tension. These pictures are imbued with mystical symbols and seem encoded.

Objects become symbols that need to be decoded. Characters seem to consist of abstractly shaped details that form a complicated mosaic. The figures of people stand still while the world around them is constantly moving in the whirl of the tiny particles.
