He depicts the beauty of the human face. Just as much as he depicts what makes our faces captivating, he also focuses on our flaws. This method makes his paintings extremely realistic.

His method to obtain a realistic portrait includes scratching oil off of aluminum, not by editing images using Photoshop.
