His artwork has been exhibited at MoMA PS1, The Center for Book Arts, Printed Matter, Jeffrey Deitch Projects, Andrew Edlin gallery, Feature gallery, Team gallery, Kerry Schuss gallery, Fierman gallery, Exile gallery Berlin, Galerie du Jour Agnes B Paris, and others.

The framed drawing-painting-collage on greeting cards at CCS were made during the recent pandemic – and are on greeting cards in part because of the way this very American practice represents the contradiction of an impersonal corporate product as a facsimile or stand-in for personal connection.
