One of the most fruitful and exquisite Transcarpathian masters of still life. Talented, emotional, impressively multi-genre landscape painter. His perfect lyric-epic canvases demonstrate the mountain panorama of native Carpathians and stormy coast of the North Sea, villages of Verkhovyna and city landscapes of Uzhhorod, Budapest, Moscow, Bukhara, Samarkand. He immortalized nearly all the old wooden churches of Transcarpathia for posterity. All his work is marked with realistic expressiveness and artistry of style.
