His prints are mostly characterized by highly elaborate printing techniques: he uses multiple impressions (sometimes more than 50), overprinting and metallic pigments. Since 1981 he has only produced 2 or 3 prints per year in relatively small editions, so his work is not often found and relatively expensive.
