In 2017 he received the VBK Benninghaus Prize for his drawings.
"I understand the drawings of the series "Notations and Civilizations" as fictitious, improvised graphic scores. They do not follow a program or graphical scheme.
Though they can remind of graphic representations of sounds, noises or scores of new music, as well as of aerial photos or diagrams of cities and landscapes. They share the unrest, the rhythm, the structure and networks, the disruptions of our time.
The lines, or paths, can take any time a different direction, change their shape, take distance from each other, create alliances, develop new orders.
Everything is connected in some way or reacts to each other.
Development is never completed but always in progress."
