He uses his own recourse based on comic strip characters, texts, arrows and various signs, juxtaposed onto the figures that resemble comic strip style language.

He has exhibited at galleries and institutions throughout the world, and his work is represented in the permanent collections of the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, among many others.
