The day I become a memory

In his work he deals with the theme of transience and the traces that people leave in the world. He is fascinated by old ruins and walls, and in general by everything that is of historical importance. But landscapes are also a source of inspiration. His relief-like and abstract paintings are characterized by structure and layering.
