Boglárka Nagy is a young painter who has earned a noted spot on the palette of Hungarian contemporary art.
Besides individual and group exhibitions, she already attracts bids at various international auctions, e.g. at the Sotheby's London '20th Century Art - A different perspective' in 2016, where her work titled 'Summer Love' was sold alongside other names like Lajos Kassák, Endre Bálint or Judit Reigl. The number of her collectors have been continuously growing, not only in Hungary, but around the world. She is the first Hungarian painter and female artist who got into the LUMAS portfolio in 2017.
Her works are expressive, lively and composed with clear, rich colors steeped with the spirit of the 21st century. Her portrayal of the human figure is particular and independent. Every piece of her series called 'SUN WATER AIR' is characterized with light, blue sky, freedom and life-affirmation. The latest pieces of the series came under the influence of Boglárka's travels in Southeast-Asia. One can find imprints of the unique world of Japan, wind-swept beaches of Vietnam, South China Sea, deep beauty of Cambodia, simple lives of buddhist monks and the clear-out philosophy of their religion. These paintings are about freedom, inner actions of the soul and divergence from the western consumptive culture. A deeper imagery of the characters overpoint Boglárka Nagy's foregoing lightsome, easy, sometimes frivolous and provocative intonation. Lately, not only the colors but also her subject matters have become more sensitive and lyrical.
