He makes numerous sketches, collects them into albums, and only then, in the workshop, recreates them in color on canvas or paper. The masters are interested in the most diverse and simplest subjects that life tells him. Aron Zinshtein always stayed away from all kinds of "left" and "right" movements in art. He was not accepted either by Soviet official art or among non-conformist artists. In art, he values ​​spontaneity and freedom, claiming: «I am a naive artist, I can depict everything».
