Adam Dora

Born: 1993

member since: 2018


Adam Dora has always been inclined to capture the visual world surrounding him. As a child, he drew and painted a lot and his passion hasn’t faded since growing up. This insatiable interest lead him to the path of becoming a painter. He started to learn drawing from Ágnes Mészáros, then he got admitted to the University of Fine Arts in Budapest, where he got his diploma in 2017. He completed his masters degree at the University were Zsigmond Károlyi and Zoltán Ötvös. He currently lives and works in Budapest. He has been organizing exhibitions since he was 16. In the beginning, he mostly painted portraits of his friends and exhibited in his hometown. Since then, he had many solo and group exhibitions all over the country, mostly in Budapest. His works have been influenced by both European and American painting traditions. Among contemporary artists, namely David Hockney, Alex Katz, Alice Neel, Per Kirkeby and Jules de Balincourt are the main sources of his inspiration. His works are composed of series painted with oil on canvases. These pictures are often the consequences of each other, they are interlaced. He plays with the repetition and variations of recurrent similar elements. The apparition of these motifs in new contexts create a rich visual language that has many interpretations. The sketchbooks and the works on paper are the big canvases first signs. They contain the visual thinking, the notes, the planning and sometimes the cleaning up, the finalization. These little pieces of paper are like a visual diary in which we can follow the organized thoughts of the painter. During his contemplations, he is searching for answers to the questions that are within the domain of painting while reflecting our present visual culture.
