Cannot be unsteady that person, who looks up the stars.
/ Leonardo da Vinci /
I believe in traditional art and the long and exhausting learning process of using pencils, brushes and the expanding orders of paints, which are new challenges for every artists. After finishing University of Art in Szeged, I still did not know much about the the wide scale of possibilities and methods and the very special painting technics of the Far-East or Africa.
However, lots of geniuses discovered and followed those cultures in Europe.
The greatest impact on educated individuals are still the French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists ( regarding all the visitors of their fine-art exhibitions).
It is well known that they ( the Impressioniststs) were first studying the old Japanese woodcuts and used them basicly to create their very new and impressive paintings to change the boring and stereotyped Art-World.
I have found my Archetype Source in the Chinese Callygraphy and tried to create all my paintings as a Calligraphic Sign of My Own Interpretation. I use the unpredictable elements on my pictures as part of technique and not the Ideology.
The Ideaology is my point of view
THE MORE SIMPLE, THE MORE SIGNIFICANT,
means to reduce all unnecessary parts, lines and spots to emphasize the quintessence of my message to the World.
