In the central circle a series of shotguns are presented around a central dot on the red background; above and under the circle are floral applications with the motif of a bird, placed in four angles of a square.

The artist's introvert character and the life in the imposed isolation defined his expression, including the selection of subject matters and techniques. Focused on one object for presentation, a specific self-portrait, where he is carrying a firearm (or is surrounded by it), Lobanov creates an authentic matrix for his compositions, always applying the same means of shaping – Indian ink, a pencil, crayons, felt pens, sometimes even a photograph. His realisations bring certain spiritual atmosphere, as a reflexion of inner psychological world (N. Ljubomirović)
