Inspired by medieval gravures and traditional woodcut techniques,he works on quirky, oldschool linocut & woodcut artworks at his studio. He combines children image which he sees as symbol of innocence and naivety with a grotesque world. He features unknown and uncanny compositions with them. The images and drawings are rather from a faraway world where traditional woodprint techniques has been used.
