"He works as Graphic Designer predominantly in the fields of editorial and web design, as well as branding, illustration and photography.
But his creative range spans also to collaborative and artistic projects which involve art and fashion, related particularly to interest in our self-perception (or “self-construction”) through digital photography and social media.
Furthermore he seems to be developing a kind of “total design” approach, in which fairly everything, from his wardrobe to his Instagram page is subjected to his particular creative imprint characterized by interplay of geometrical structures and oppositions of black and white. This approach recalls historical artistic practices which pleaded for identification between art and life, as well as for total aesthetization of peoples living environment." → Dobrila Denegri, art historian and curator of 'Transfashional'
