Themes and technique:
Since 1991 he produces small sized still lifes of classical style in the spirit of Flemish and Spanish painters of the 17th century: bouquets, vanities, still lifes of fruits, flowers, objects of everyday life, sometimes on landscape background.
He also developed a more personal universe with staged small na´ve characters inspired by the world of toys.
The miniatures are painted with egg tempera and oil glazings on wood support.
