“Every illustrator for a price of lenient scorn he usually faces, gains something that most of aces of modern art usually lack: primal, sensual, unbound joy of painting.”

In 1999 he won a stipend of Ministry of Culture and Arts. He concentrates on press, book and advert illustration and on poster. He does not avoid comics and painting.
