His main artistic work deals with people with all their facets of the question of existence, the mystery of being human. He also likes to be allowed to do so inspired by myths and fairy tales or ideological or pseudo-religious ideas of the different cultures and epochs of human history. The strongest driving force for his work is the blatant discrepancy between his dream image of a world worth striving for in harmony, beauty, and innocence and often found reality in the form of violence, alienation, and abuse.
