When it comes to a movement to associate the artist with we should call it conceptual art. Not only is the colour still very brilliant in his end works, the surface quality is very textured almost giving his work a sculptural feeling.

Price range information: The artist works in a variety of mediums from oils and acrylics to watercolors and price range $1,000 to $8,0000.

Its also interesting to see the names he chooses for his work. He blends them all into one word with capital letters, another interesting concept!
