Using realism as his primary tool, he takes up the role like a mailman, He transports and delivers written languages, iconography, and imagery of urban landscapes from places where he has lived, with minimum alterations of their original form, into one single composition. By doing so, he creates unusual visual documentations that are set to induce you to question the logic and reason behind the existence of any artifact you would find interesting in his work.In a way, his works are essentially recounts of his subjective experiences of multiple artificial spaces, in which the commonalities and differences present in the way we think and act in our respective social and political environments would manifest upon close examination and contemplation.
