Tibor Boromisza was born in 1880 in Bácsalmás. Between 1903 and 1907 he studied and worked at the Free School of Nagybánya. From 1906 he created his unique intonation works in the neo style of Nagybánya, he had several collective exhibitions in Budapest and in the country as well. Between 1909 and 1914 he settled in Nagybánya. In 1911 he was excommunicated from the colony, as he came into conflict with the member of the first generation, because of his principles of the Nagybánya colony’s reform. Until 1918 he lived in Szatmárnémedi, after the First World War in Budapest, between 1945 and 1953 he lived in Keszthely, and then, until his death he lived and worked in Szentendre. In the memorial house of Szentendre a permanent exhibition can be viewed. After 1945 he painted decorative watercolors, which were based on Nagybánya “Neo” traditions.

The rich colors and the movement toward secession was early characteristic of him, but eventually won the special form of reduction, his symbol elements using Post-impressionism. He felt comfortable both the figure and the landscape representation.
