Komet transfers the dreams of his own world onto his paintings, poetry is always in the foreground and original works emerge; It depicts stories about love and death, hopes and extinction. In plays that leave the definitions of time-space open, identities hidden by masks, and fantasy fictions, the stage designs and the fiction of the play are full of fantastic elements as much as the story. Another method that appears in comet paintings is the period known as the “Panic Group”; In this way, it closely follows and exhibits the perception and practice of fantastic theater and cinema.
