“Magic is what makes the painter”, says his maker. On his long journey through what has been an unusual life, exper-
iencing the fate of Europe´s highs and lows, he discovered the world of painting, through which he communicates his past experiences and brings them to the present. His goal is painting, which erases hypocrisy and life`s theatre. It shows man`s existence in its purest form.
