In 1974 he was selected for the Venice Biennale with the polyptych “Genesis”. The landscapes in which he lived and the people he met were his familiar themes.

Serigraphy is a process in which an image is created using screen printing techniques. The image is scanned from the original oil painting and digitally separated into the different colors. Each color is assigned its own screen print and is applied by hand.
