Acrylic and neon-painted canvases delightfully demonstrate an accumulation of universal or mythological motifs simplified on the verge of abstraction. Correspondingly, the juxtaposition of geometrical patterns, colours, and textures codifies his language yet makes them intriguing. Taking a close look at the composition reveals layers of motifs like architecture, temple, rays, the sun, the moon, and undoubtedly much more. Perhaps it depicts the sky with the movement of the sun or the moon in a three-dimensional space where, possibly, home is the key element. However, according to.
