For his paintings he uses a clean technique which resembles the old Flemish method of rigid forms and a successive glazes of paint. 


His works are separated in three major concepts; “Two Grounds” which was the first personal exhibition in Bucharest, “Reality through Reason-Cosmogony” the second one, and “Human Extension” which is in progress and will be displayed in 2016 at Galateca gallery in Bucharest.
 
The most recent series of oil paintings, have a concept based on the relation of man and machine, called Human Extension, in which the artist explores this relationship using facts and imagination, resulting in a surreal image.
