Ketsa’s works focus on figural paintings, drawings, and lithography. His style is characterized by a specifically grotesque representation of characters and the deliberate deformation of the objects.
Ketza is a sea boy, for him the sea is Nature, it is the Truth, the sea is in him, deep in his heart and in his paintings. The sea is the background of all its compositions in countless colors and meanings. The sea is a sacred place for his dreams and realities for parables, myths, legends.
