Statement
Born Budapest, Hungary in 1971 is a painter working predominently with oil on canvas paintings but also experiments with digital, performance, installations, stereo design and art.
Tutored from the age of 14 by his friend and neighbour Professor F Hazmen, Professor of Arts at The Hungarian University of Applied Art, Farkas gained professional artistic status through the Association of Hungarian Artists (MOAE) in 2004.
Using the classical medium of oil on canvas this newly found work builds the composition through the use of colour and form, recreating life situations into something tangible. Stories that tie together to repeatedly creating a never ending conversation. The original philosophy behind the works is to show how to disappear and how to survive the few moments of life, driving ourselves into realising our emotions from the freaky connections we have with the material world.
An accomplished and profilic artist, hosted numerous solo and group exhibitions across Europe, and featured across the globe in open calls, competitions and editorials.
