About his work Serob says: I like to paint modern style, symbolic, realistic and I distinguish my ideas style and colour from other painters of art. Symbols that one can see in my work are pigeons (love), horse (freedom), circles of light (energy from God) and young people (Purity). Sometimes I also like to produce religious art, because I am a believer. I am an artist and I like to work for all people in the whole world.
