In the same year his work was selected exclusively in the Provincial Art Exhibition with "excuse from examination". From 1956 to 1963 he was employed as judge of the Provincial Art Exhibition. However, due to the difference of concepts and ideas, he quit the position of judge and withdrew from exhibitions, concentrating on his own artistic creation. His style is romantic and sweet, with simple and clear themes and outright free tones and strokes.
