The expression of his paintings, with casual brushstrokes, almost overwhelmed colors and naïve lines, calls upon constantly to religion, particularly to Catholic Church, by questioning dogmas on both linear and binary sexuality. His pieces of work also laugh at systematized consumer’s society through a unique perspective.
