His drawings capture the haunting and disturbing facial expressions and body postures, bursting with intense melancholic emotions. He seemed to have explored the dark, hidden realm of the human psyche, and witnessed the horror and absurdity of its existence. Or simply… the artist has an extraordinary creative imagination!
