His works are in the private collections and museums of European countries as well as of the U.S.A. and Canada.
He has elaborated his style, founded on the contrasts of colours, on the mosaic texture,rich in shades, beautiful accords. The colour is, in fact, the contents of his works as the expression of emotions. For him the colour is the aim and sense of the art of painting.
