work has always acknowledged roots form the art history
of the West and the East, and the cityscapes developed from
his practice of plein-air painting and sketching, and from
combining various formats to result in new compositions.

push artistic limits with a greatly exaggerated perspective
that emphasizes the verticality of compositions and confront
the viewer with an uncomfortable feeling of vertigo.
