His work focuses on social and environmental issues because he is particularly interested in them. A stunning series of abstract conceptual works and creative drawings fashioned from wire and string were introduced in 2013 as a response to criticism that his emphasis on the avant-garde meant he was unable to draw. The pieces reflect his interest in mixed media while also showcasing his extraordinary talent at sculpting human figures and body parts.
