Artwork by Péter Somlyai
I was born on January 1, 1955 in Nagykőrös, where I still live.
I learned the profession of a carpenter, meanwhile in the Fine Arts Circle led by the painter József Rácz. I developed my pencil and charcoal drawing skills, painted in watercolor and pastel chalk. I worked as a decorator in the canning factory in Nagykőrös.
In the last 10 years, among other things, I graduated from the Piarista grammar school in Kecskemét, I developed myself in a self-taught way, then I went to an online academy and evening school as a painter. Where I can learn the mysteries of painting from Contemporary Artists namely from János Zoltán Kovács and many other excellent artists. I also got my Certificate as a Graphic Designer and Painter here, which is the fruit of 4 hard years of work.
I am greatly influenced by the realistic academic school and the great masters of Impressionism, I follow them, I profess to be a Post-Impressionist, but the novel techniques are not far from me either.
I took part in the courses of Cserhát – Munkácsy and László Holló Prize winner, painter KUNST MEISTER where I received a Special Method Verzion Master’s Diploma.
Luckily I learned a lot from Veronica because she passed on her great knowledge to us from the heart.
For which I am very grateful.
Yours sincerely, Péter Somlyai
