Hastik’s paintings are nearly monochromatic and very detailed. They are paintings of a philosopher and intellectual person. The artist’s message is not superficial but very profound. The meditated and thought out paintings in grey, blue, yellow, red or black colours, decently formed, radiate an endless tranquillity which touches the soul in a very special way.
