  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Since the early 90’s he has been making traditional oil-canvas paintings. As a starting point, he often uses media images, newspaper cut-outs, postcards, film-stills. When painting, he concentrates on such high density moments, when our everyday experiences and viewing practices become obsolete while decoding. He creates empty spaces around the objects of thoughts and figures without defining them in a preconceived notion. It is the distance and the concentrated attention on absence that rules his relationship with painting. What he is most interested in is the search of interpretation of knowing and not-knowing, the way they are able to extinguish one another. He collects inspiration from the rubbish of collective memory, which he then re-interprets through the reality of painting. He attempts to dissolve the already defined and often false structures, and introduce new types of looking in a peculiar formal and compositional levitation, where the paintings’ vacuum-like state partially originates in the loneliness of represented elements, and partially from the transformation of metaphysical into universal. Born in Miskolc, Hungary in 1967. Lives and works in Budapest.
