His work can be seen in various public collections and companies. “Chevalier académicien de Mondial Art Academia”, he has received an abundance of awards and distinctions.
Superrealism is part of contemporary art, "Supra" meaning beyond. It is the quest for a visible reality by going beyond, in the conscious inner space. Superrealism is the resonance of great themes in the conscious life of the artist.
The elaboration of his work is unhurried, it evolves gradually. Its gestation is the true creation. Then, it comes alive like a birth with pain and happiness. Within imaginary places of the universe appear landscapes, spaces where characters live, animals that communicate with nature. When the artist creates, he wants it to be unique and to represent what he was feeling when he completed it.
The exhibition includes 16 acrylic paintings and 5 steatite stone carvings.
