Why does artist Laslo Seres prefer to paint heads over other subjects? Laslo Seres is a Hungarian artist who believes that he is more an art restorer than a painter. In spite of this, though, this gentleman has made quite a stir in the art world with his art exhibition ‘Heads’ at the Hacienda Art Gallery. Laslo says he prefers painting heads to landscapes or still life as it feels closer and real and he doesn’t have to wonder what he has to do for his next painting. Even with his casual approach, this artist has successfully sold 13 paintings out of the 27 on display at the exhibition. Every painting of his is unique, different in its own right, with every colour depending on the artist’s mood. Being an art restorer, Laslo Seres is well aware of the different brush strokes that can put life in a painting, and has made an excellent use of these in his brilliant paintings. A thorough follower of Indian art, he has quite a few favourites and wants to continue his beautiful rendezvous with India, as he never quite seems to get enough of this country of art lovers. No one’s questioning that! […]

Lazslo Seres, the Hungarian artist likes being known more as a restorer than a painter. But after his successful show in Mumbai and now in the capital, he likes to take his paintings more seriously. “My paintings are not portrayals, neither portraits, but the head, as the theme is a determined frame in which I can freely paint. They are impressions of the momental mood and have to be considered  like that”, says the artist. After graduating from the Department of Restoration, College of Fine Arts, Budapest, and from the Department of Arts, Cooper Union of Art, New York, Seres has worked mainly as a painter and participated in individual and group exhibitions. Later restoration became his main activity. He restored mostly the wall pictures of museums but he also worked as the chief restorer of the Museum of Fine Arts. For the last couple of years he has been working mainly as a painter, and has had two successful individual exhibitions in Mission Art, Budapest, and in Hacienda Gallery, Mumbai. His present exhibition being hosted by the Hungarian Cultural Centre is a true delight for art connoisseurs. The exhibition will be on view for public till March 15, 2009 […]
