I am a Roma artist who migrated from Hungary to London in 2010 and contributed to the capital’s art scene from the outset. I started painting in the early 90s, while studying and working at the Open Studio Art Foundation of Városliget in Budapest. In the following years I participated in various art project and workshops in Hungary. In 2004 I travelled to Greece and worked briefly in Athens and Crete before returning to Central Europe for my first solo exhibition at the Goethe Institute in Budapest. My works has been exhibited at London’s Park Theatre and at New York University on the Opre Khetanes Romani Art and Music Symposium, as well as at UCL Festival of Culture in London.
Now I am working as an artist in residence at Park Theatre in London and exploring collage and mixed media techniques at Mary Ward Centre.
