Entirely self-taught and renown for using his techniques with powerful juxtapositions, that invoke strong ideas and thoughts to the viewer. A minimalist approach to art, that attempts to read the object of content and to being left with just the objects of presence. He does this by creating figurative and hyper-realistic images, which gain the attention of the viewer, a feat of which he is globally renown for.

His paintings are an example of and contain pop art references, dating back to the 1970s through the eyes of modern aestheticism. The implementation of imagery often produces deliberation and has a controversial touch to question his art, the politics and the world. With playful and cultural subject visions in his paintings, he reaches out for the nostalgia and retrospective for the general atmosphere.
