His work is unique as although his main techniques are part of painting, his paintings are three-dimensional ones. He creates them, he deconstructs them and discovers a new identity, a new meaning of these paintings. His technique, on his own words, is ‘Post Painting’ a technique for one to look further over the years. Enjoy.
