CRITICAL REVIEW


        He practices carving in strong materials (stone, granite, marble) and modelling in case of smaller sculptures. He exercises various techniques of painting and book graphics. He is interested in the historical commemorative issues and thus makes the series of rulers and state ladies, portraits, religious themes etc. His works, that are destined for the public space, have an accessible figurative language or display abstractisations derived from the simplification/erasing of the plans or the descriptive details.
