Ilir explains the work by saying, “My work is focused on “objective” pictorial representation of reality, capturing and revealing the invisible hidden reality beneath the visible reality’s surface and is materialized in a representational form. Characterized by a contemporary imagery, sometimes rendered in a more realistic style, and other times as theme suggests, a semi-representational one.”
