In the past more or less 30 years, he painted, drew & wrote a growing amount of work, somewhere between what has been called abstract & surrealistic. Working in acryllic, oil or really anything he could lay his hands on, or making hundreds of illustrations, cartoons, murals. Writing poetry, proze, lyrics & music for bands & theatre. The latest devellopments include 3-D work.
Humor, amazement, a perseverant predisposition for absurdism, love & awe for mother nature & the overarching organisation which makes it all possible, the vortex of the daily chaos... literally ánything is an influence.
