In the 80's he went through abstract elements of painting in his work which is said to be due to his reaction of the Neo-Expressionist of the time.

What is abstract art?

What is abstract art?

Abstract art uses visual language of form, shape, line and color to achieve its desired effect. However, it does not attempt or seek to represent external reality but the created abstract art composition may exist with a level or degree of independence from the world's visual references.
