He deals with graphics, graphic design, painting and drawing, and more recently with the Internet as a free medium. He organized several solo exhibitions in Novi Sad (1972, 1975, 1977, 1978, 1981, 1989). Exhibited collectively at several exhibitions in the country and abroad.
He won the Golden Form of UPIDIV in 1977 and the Novi Sad Salon IX award in 1980.
His color serigraphs, close to the ideas of alternative graphics from the eighth decade, attract special attention. He advocates a form of allusive engaged graphics, explores the changed, unconventional function of the graphic sheet and the phenomenon of the press itself.” (Text by M. Arsić from the Encyclopedia of Novi Sad, volume 4).
In painting, which he has been engaged in successively and professionally for 30 years, his main subject is city views (architecture as a vertical that breaks the monotony of the plains of this climate), in an expressive, almost classical way of painting.
Since 1997, he has been dealing with the Internet phenomenon and edits the website www.vojvodina.com.
