I follow the traditional techniques of classical oil painting for preserving the beauty of realism.
My hand painted oil portraits emphasise the subjects’ best features and characters.
As such, they are not merely photographic representations of the sitters.
I was born in Hungary, however, I have been living in Australia since the age of 18. The Hungarian spelling of my name is Hörömpő.
While my main body of work is in oil paints, I have pencil, charcoal and soft pastel works as well.
I am drawn to faces, despite being strongly introverted, and on most days, I live out my need for human interaction through my portrait paintings. I often find myself talking to them. For the last few years, I have been leaning towards surrealism, which I started subtly incorporating even into my portraits.
I have completed the Fine Art component of my double degree at Curtin University this year. My strongest influences are artists Daniel Greene, Mark Carder, Cesar Santos and Andrew Tischler through their exceptional work and generous educational materials.
