The human face in many variations - mostly in strong and shiny colors - that has already become the main focus of his works. In his abstract heads, known as "holly heads" he restrains colors and reduces the subject of the portrait to the face itself. The have an individual effect, preserve expressiveness and bring the onward abstraction to the inconic form. Put in a row, they have an effect of a search for some not reachable divine archetype.
