The artist employs the photo realistic technique which he describes it as a counter language to the paintings. He adds to say, "I have done earlier that were stylistic. Whichever language you choose today the question of originality arises. With the photo realistic technique you can deal with the current issues of global and political nature. It has immediacy compared to the stylistic language."

Also, according to him, his paintings work on two levels. On one, it is a photographic reference taken from a magazine, newspaper or a Web site. On the other level, it is metaphorical where the historical and the fictional come together. The artist, using photographic images as a device in his powerful series of work draws various references between the personal and a 'kind of visual journalism', which juxtaposes contemporary issues with that of the past.
