Price range information: Sorry none available.

What a creative artist! It will be interesting to see if the artist ever tries to use more color in his installations. What I enjoy most about this very modern artist, is the fact he doesn’t use any technology yet his artwork from a distance looks like a hologram. He often starts by a drawing of the subject on semi transparent nylon. Then he makes a connect the dots system he developed using hooks on wooden panels and thread.
