Szkok, Iván



Szkok attenden the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest from 1963-70, his teachers were Sebestény Ferenc and György Kádár.  In 1992, He graduated in painting and teaching. He is a member of the Art Association DunaP’art, founded in 1987. Since 1992, he is a member of the Hungarian Society of Artists. In 1999 he was the chairman of the Society of Hungarian Fine and Applied Arts.

Iván Szkok freely combines in his works different styles and techniques with the means of painting and sculptures. The figurativity can always be found in a motive or symbol of concrete meaning. At the same time, we discover in his paintings captured by emotions, in the bodies, which are constantly in motion, in a gesture or an expression a certain tension. Through the play of positive and negative forms the „paintings in motion” are created and arise the fantasy of the observer. Everything is changing and the original painting is constantly in development, gains a new meaning. Szkok uses for his relief works clay, plaster or polyester and tempera or oil colours.
