According to his website: These works are a series of portraits that transform the human being into a new eco-human entity. Figures of a modern hero who represent those people who care for and struggle daily to preserve the environment.
His portraits use cardboard, a symbol of consumerist New York, to create three-dimensional art. He accomplishes a figure as if it were a sculpture and then paints on it as if it were a canvas. This unique technique introduces dynamics approaching sculpture.
