The graphic depicts a post-apocalyptic vision of the world conceived by the artist. At first glance, our eyes behold large buildings reminiscent of an old factory. Their brown colour is a rust-like appearance. At their base, two people can be seen – their silhouettes resemble soldiers. A sign warning of danger is also visible next to them. There is sand or steam in the air and the space is warmed by the sun.
Despite the pleasant colours used in this work, one gets the impression of a slight unease. The calm before the storm – that’s a good term. One wonders what will happen next…

In his artworks, he expresses his vision of the world through an atmosphere of surrealism. The post-apocalyptic motif recurs more than once in his works, emphasized by the gray color palette, which he also uses frequently. The artist strongly focuses on the mood that emanates from his works. Often it has a vanitative character.
