Who are you? What do you do?

I’m an artist, searching for the balance between drawing and painting. Besides, I work as a speed-drawer for events.

I am from Hungary, but live in Germany since 13 years now.

What do you find most fascinating about the creative process?

That the moment of creation is always different.

A few words about your favourite creation?

When I called to question all habits. Instead of brushes and oil colours I only used sprays, markers and different aluminium grids combining painterly and graphical processes. 

Someone else’s work that inspired or inspires you…

Bernd and Hilla Becher who changed my point of view, László Moholy-Nagy (my Hungarian side…)

A new project coming up or an idea you want to work on?

The next group exhibition in Spain with great young artists. By now I’m only in contact via Instagram and so I am looking forward to meet them personally.

Finish the sentence „More important than my career is…“

Tell us about your future plans…

When I look back I start to become sentimental and when I look forward I can not concentrate on the present moment. So I do not make big plans.
