Below he describes his inspiration behind his weed drawings.

"Weeds are wild plants that are not desired. As much as they have been destroyed, contaminated and burned away, these plants grow there triggered by their own will and they grow so rapidly and successfully, that the struggle against it stays in vain. As is usually the case, weeds are wrongfully designated as bad plants, harmful or even completely as not useful, though it is to concern that some of them actually are medical, some of them eatable but nevertheless- all of them are beautiful. I perceive savage meadows in an poetic and symbolic way. The weeds are as all other, outcast from the society, marked as unwelcome, judged and sometimes even razed. That what I actually paint is their triumph. The weed will flourish always."
