Adam Dora

Born: 1993

member since: 2018


He started to learn drawing from Ágnes Mészáros, then he get admitted to the University of Fine Arts in Budapest, where he got his graduation in 2017. His masters at the University where Zsigmond Károlyi and Zoltán Ötvös. He presently lives and works in Budapest.

His work has been both influenced by the European and American painting traditions. His work is 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 creates a rich visual language that has many interpretations.

The sketchbooks and the works on paper are the big canvases first signs. These little pieces of paper are like a visual diary in which we can follow the organized thoughts of the artist.

During his contemplations he is searching for answers to the questions that are within the domain of painting while reflecting our present visual culture.
