His fulldome short movie Dream was projected at Fulldome Jena Festival and Fulldome UK 2022, won Best Prize in Melbourne Dome Under Festival 2023 

His works refer to tradition of surreal animation and wide range of art genres. Through the  visuals made from vintage illustrations he attempts to recreate experience of dream and oneiric reality taking inspiration from childhood fairytales, movies, paintings, books or music.

As a self-taught animator he uses digital technics to create his content but also gives a try to traditional, hand drawing animation.
