My first determining art experience was my drawing teacher, René Benkő in the primary school. He was my patron who cared for me, gave me lessons after school and helped me to develop my abilities. One of my beloved memories is when he told me to buy a kitchen stool and his instruction was to draw it from each direction until the pencil runs out of my hand. So this was the beginning. Afterwards I continued drawing in Highschool.
Heading towards enginering I started the Budapest University of Technologies (BME), Faculty of Transportation. After finishing the University I got married. I worked for the Company of Transportation in Budapest. A couple of years later I took part in the foundation of Fővinform (Traffic Information of the Capital)whereas I'm the deputy executive at the moment. My name should sound familiar to some people because of my frequent presence in the Hungarian National Tv Chanel or the Radio. Those days one could hold a microfone if he or she was awarded to be eligible by the Commitee of Hungarian Language. I am one of those luckiest people who was tought by Professor Fisher.
Later on I took part in the foundation of Compexpo, whereas we organized fairs and exhibitions using my patent. I had the possibility to play a part in the preparation of the Budapest-Vienna World Exhibition which failed after the political changes in Hungary. In between my daughter was born.
Afterwards I founded Serwise Studio, my own advertising graphical company. At the begining we struggled through the manual part of the work. Nowdays we are able to solve any wish of our costumers concerning of the progress of computer softwares.
Last year I made an effort to collect the visual designers in a trade association in Hungary with the aim to publish a book and to build up an organization which helps them to show their artistic side. Serwise Art was founded to help these art workers to cross the border of the conventional Fine Art categories, which do not count their pictures to contempory art. We aimed to establish a Web Shop where these art works could have been sold. Our aim unfortunately has failed.
Self-expression is a universal desire. There are those for whom it’s part of everyday life and there are those who achieve self-expression via the works of others. Art is an ancient medium which bridges different cultures, peoples and ages. After trying out several artistic techniques and methods, I discovered giclée, which is the most suitable for me. To my great surprise, it gives a great deal of joy, thought and relaxation, not just to me, but to those who view my works.
Despite this, I often have to overcome the difficulties thrown up by such a novel technique. Giclée has just begun to find its place among the established artistic categories in the last decade. The artistic composition achieves its final form exclusively with the aid of a computer, even if one or other elements of the composition are created by classical means such as painting and drawing or by using photography or other sources. The final product, as seen in a gallery or at home, is prepared with the help of a special printer and –in my case- on special canvas.
It is a challenge to get this new branch of art accepted by the majority for what it is. My pictures provoke mainly positive feelings and are eye-catching. Perhaps my finished, often exhausting and ground-breaking work goes some way towards getting the new technique accepted. From my friends and those who admire my work I get both self confidence and the reassurance that I’m on the right track. My pictures aren’t just concerned with my self-expression, but are meant to catalyse a reaction in the inner world of others.
