Tamás Vilmos Kovács was born on July 24th, 1951 in Budapest. In 1978 he was accepted to the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied with Simon Sarkantyu. He has been exhibiting regularly since 1982.
Tamás Vilmos Kovács is mainly a figurative artist. His works express different conditions of the human soul, different states of being. His paintings are dominated by the colours red, yellow, blue and green, only rarely does he use shading and intergradation of colours. Kovács's colours, forms, and gestures express a certain sense of loneliness and vulnerability. The figures, often shown from a close-up angle, don't seem to be interconnected, they only exist for themselves. Their eyes and gestures seem to reveal that they are observing something, but the object of their interest stays unclear to the observer – and probably to the figures themselves. It seems as if they were all coming from somewhere and going somewhere without a visible goal. In the situations defined by the depicted gestures, the groups of figures create some sort of a scene without a definite conclusion or aim. Even the musicians are not listening to each other, they are all just focusing on their own music.
Kovács's interiors show the spectator the surroundings and environment of humans through a few expressive objects while completely lacking human presence.
