I’m a hungarian artist, who was born in Transylvania. I have been living in Denmark and Malta for 14 years. Since 2002 I live and work in Budapest. I have exhibitions since 1980.

ARS POETICA

I confess that „Natura artis magistra”. I have my inspirations from nature. My sculptures are related with the living nature while they are emphasizing the metal materiality.

Each work is unique in it’s detailed interlocking of form creating an expressionists symbol of real concept. I often use the technics of „lost-wax” (cire perdu) for my sculptures and jewelry. My jewelry are sometimes part of sculpures. Wearable and functionality is important for me.

I’m working with stainless steel, silver, bronze, stone, semi-precious stones and tropical woods.

I like to experiment with surfaces and materials. Motion, dynamic is also recurring element in my art. I never join any trends or groups in my life.

My motto is that sculpures and jewelry are the meeting of microcosm and macrocosm in organic forms. They are timeless in harmony with nature.
