Impressionists and post impressionists have significantly influenced his work. His paintings mainly focus on nature, landscapes, animals and birds. He has done a lot of paintings with reflections of nature in water or seascapes. Painting water seems to be a pattern. A lot of his early paintings are abstracts on canvas. Many of his paintings are blue which the dominant colour in his pallet.

His favourite medium is acrylic on canvas which is his preferred choice of work is mainly abstract on canvasses, but he has had commissions for murals as well as fine art works. He has an uncanny ability to convey the essence of the subject he is painting and works at an extraordinary fast pace. Watching him paint is like watching a matador in a bull fight. He attacks his canvas and steps back to observe, repeating this several times to create a unique, mesmerising piece of art.
By nature Shabs is an intense, compassionate, fun, vibrant and full of life character/artist.
