In his paintings inspired mostly by the surreal-metaphysical style, suggested suggestions shadow games with which he tries to express the his ideas, his moods and his deepest feelings: the shadows, the absolute protagonist of his works, always different from the subject depicted, let dreams, emotions and daily fears emerge. Chess, another dominant theme of his works, merging with the shadows create imaginative images that aim to communicate a pure stimulus to the sensitivity of those who "read" his paintings.
