About the Artist
Nicolas Szuhodovszky was born in 1975 in Stockholm. He began his fine arts studies in Sweden at the school called Konstskolan i Stockholm. In 1999, he moved to Budapest, where he studied oil painting and restoration at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts until 2004.
Presently, he works as a freelance painter and illustrator, fulfilling assignments from countries around the world. His repertoire comprise genres, like portraits, still-lifes, landscapes, and individual ideas. He also teaches drawing and painting in his studio in Budapest.
We could describe his painting style as belonging to Representational Art. His figurative paintings are influenced by Romantic Realism, combined with a symbolical themed Baroque-esque veneer. He paints his compositions with oil paint and loves working with pastels as well.
Painting aims and principles:
- to express archetypal forms and themes, independent of the spirit of the age, to bring the eternal and the timeless to life;
- a sensual depiction of beauty and harmony, to create elegance with graceful and stylized forms;
- to capture pathos and emotions;
- to gain the highest level of pictorial knowledge and craft through continuous learning and self-education.
His pictures are reconstructions of reality from a personal perspective. He strives to capture a lifelike image that goes beyond the flat and over-detailed look transferred by photography. Instead, he rearranges and renders the visual components in a stylized composition. The aim is to give story-like meaning to the image, using proven classical painting techniques.
