Selected exhibitions:

Plots from the Old Testament and landscapes of Jerusalem are the artist’s favourite subjects. His works are full with sublime feeling of a secret and of mystical presentiments. This art is unusually kind, light and slightly humorous, it’s filled with love to the World. Prevalence of gentle enamel-blue shades in color symbolizes initial purity and reminds of the sky and the sea.
