“Moving Rock” : Rock (original one is in Central Park, New York City) moves very slowly.
“Moving Wall” : Wall ( 6 ft x 8 ft x 2 ft , Italian Marble ) moves very slowly.
“Moving Cube” : Cube (10 x 10 x 10 ft mirror finished stainless steel cube ) moves very slowly.
I took the molds of the rocks at Central Park, New York City with the permission of Central Park Administration Office. Large rock took me and 10 helpers, 10 days to take the mold at the Park. Then I cast the rock with the plastic resin mixed with sand , mica, minerals and pigments. The plastic resin is very dangerous for the health, so I used the best gas mask connected with air compressor to get fresh air. I used best materials for the AC motor and switches. Everything was done very carefully with precise accuracy. 14 and half feet long “Moving Rock” took me two years to complete. I installed permanently these Moving Rocks in several cities in USA. Some of them are still moving every day 10 am-5 pm.
These moving sculptures moves very slowly by the hidden AC motor. Movement is straight back and forth and very slow. I think myself Minimalist.
I made many oil on linen paintings which has many small paintings in one large painting. One of them has 242 small paintings in 6 ft x 12 ft painting and took me two years to complete.
I also made oil on linen paintings with many elements on the background landscape. Titles were “Floating matter -#” “ Elements large and small-#”
I work as a minimalist to achieve the most powerful and beautiful art works.

I have been living in Manhattan for the last 50 years. I meet New York Sparrows every day. They live wild and free, not in the cage. They have known me so many years and come to meet me every morning on the street and at the Madison Square Park.
Each individual sparrow is so different from each other in color, size, shape and shades. This diversity of the individual is the same diversity as human New Yorkers.
When I see the vast landscape from 3,0000 feet up in the air, I am amazed by the fact that all small and large elements are living on the ground. And I’d like to record all of them. This is the passion and obsession of my every day life.
