He is a realist with strong expressionistic tendencies. Art for him could not be reduced to terms of aesthetic sensation alone. He therefore tried to make a subjective statement that reflects the tragedy of the human condition. His swirling or swelling figures, both human and animal, burst the bounds of normal anatomy by sheer force of vitality.
