Attila Olasz



–             When did you discover your artistic vocation?
When I was fourteen, I started drawing and painting. In my first paintings, creatures from the past, planes, biblical themes appeared. But I am also interested in the human figure from the early years!

–             Which artist and / or cultural current was particularly important for your training?
I have to highlight the painters Ferenc Pataki and Ernő Tolvaly, who personally supported my efforts. I studied at several art schools. I graduated as a painter at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Pécs. I especially like the antique marble sculptures and baroque artists among the old masters. Surrealism as a method of imaging has taught many lessons from modern art.

–            What should an artist represent and inspire with own art?

Artistic activity is a complex form of life. It requires a lot of attention. The enjoyment of creation, working with materials brings great moments, helps us find ourselves and our relationship to the issues of our world. Putting thoughts into the picture, conveying the message is part of a process aimed at the audience. In my paintings, inner spiritual motivations, struggles, human relationships, dramatic situations are important.

–            What techniques do you prefer to carry out your artworks?

I use a lot of materials. In addition to oil and acrylic, I really like the pastel technique, its picturesqueness. In addition to these, the glowing colors of the oil pastel, the rich transitions of the watercolor pencils. I paint on canvas, wood, colored sheets, watercolor paper. A wide variety of textures give a different effect.
