Light is the essence of his work. An oil based artist, he works with everyday life subjects, through which he wants to show that there is movement behind all matter in the Universe, and behind every shown colour and shape in it, there is far more complex and deeper energy and meaning. Inspired by the masters of light and colour in art history, amongst which Van Gogh takes special place, he enjoyed taking part in the creation of Loving Vincent.
