Travelling through the universe of the language of painting from zero-minimalism to hyper- surrealism, I make use of the accumulated experience and the many opportunities which are lying before me, I pick the creating method that is requested by the moment and by the task so that the visual formula constituted by colors, forms and proportions can be born.

I paint. I experiment. I convey.


I think and work in series. At first glance, these are technically different sequences, but on further observation, they are noticeably related to each other, they are links which are supporting and building one another, ranges of tasks that are furthering and bringing forward my artistic approach and concepts.


Even if the successful creation is accomplished, an eternal and obstinate duality is born: the task is very easy and hard at the same time, the creative process is as short as a moment, and it is also never-ending. A deadly serious play, a give and take game with the past, present and future.

In this strict dual scheme, the delicate balance found with the help of the created image may mean the impression of instantaneous perfection both for the spectator and for me, the artist. My goal is to find this balance as many times as possible.


Drawing an painting have been accompanying me since my childhood, but generally I am excited by every sort of creating process. Perhaps this is why I established myself in the field of graphic design. In the recent years the thirst of autonomous creation has been getting stronger in me, so I have been gradually shifting my energy toward painting, so that it can fully accomplish itself soon. The future is of the paintings.

I was born in 1975 in  Hungary.

I  live and work in  Budapest, Hungary
