Laszlo Feher

Born: 1953

member since: 2019


László Fehér is among the most important Hungarian painters and visual artists, a prominent figure of the Hungarian contemporary art scene.  His iconic individual style is well known and cannot be confused with anybody else’s: merging forms, figuration and abstraction, dynamic composition, few colours and balance of forms and details. The great majority of his paintings is inspired by his own life, reflecting on social themes, full of truth and freedom.

Lásló Fehér was born in Székesfehérvár, Hungary, on 17 March 1953. He is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts, and a recipient of many international awards and fellowships. In 2007 he was appointed the Ambassador of Hungarian Culture. He lives and works in Budapest and Tác, Hungary.
