Agnes Kontra is a Budapest based contemporary artist. Her canvases are  abstract color compositions of visible and invisible spaces, capturing minimal movements.

The subjects of her paintings do not originate directly out of the visual physical sight, they rather stem from her personal stories and experiences, and meditations. Agnes  is interested in the manifestations of life, the "becoming" or “disappearing” of spaces or objects that emerge in front of our eyes, moments of existence. Her aim is to lead the observers of her paintings  into a world of silence and forgiveness.

She studied  at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts (1997-2002), majoring in painting, art history and art teaching. After that, in 2001-2002, she was a student in Munich, at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste. She has been a member of the Association of Hungarian Artists since 2002.

She has made several study trips across Europe (Great Britain, Italy, Germany and France) and also several month long trips on the american and asian continents. She gained further qualifications  in psychology and psychotherapy. She is a Professional Certified Coach / Accredited by the International Coach Federation,ACC. The artist aims to help the viewers step into their strengths.

Agnes Kontra's works can be found in many collections, e.g. Brussels, Belgium, Ceer Council of European Energy Regulators, TÜV Rheinland Hungary, as well as private collections in New York, München, Zürich, Budapest.
