Behind his personal exhibitions he attended many other mixed exhibitions. Childhood, portraits, memories, human, human dignity, relations of humans and animals are his main themes. Acrylic, collage, digital press and mixed technique working artist is currently working in his own studio. He interprets his works, as representing people’s corrosive selfish desires, the desires that are trapped at inwardness of people, and also the obstacles at reflecting these desires. Henarrate that object of desires differ in each people, inwards, and desires are poisoned by the ego, will, action and situations. For him the art works are the growing estrangement of people’s desires to themselves, which even sometimes can appears at a sadist severed head, but they are not the ones that we can analyze as a basic Freudian one. The figures are foreign to sensitiveness as they are to the world; they are almost insane due to appearing suddenly at the paper. Behind the decomposition of sense in the figures, theycan be the ones establishing each other. Lastly, the circles, coronas, at the back of people’s head in the art works represent the rejection of trying to sense and understand the world.
