Dalma Göncz lives and works in Budapest. Concrete, the material used for the artistic creation itself, is an important mean of expressing her thoughts, feelings and messages. Concrete plays an important role in both the creating the texture and the theme itself, through which her pieces unlike traditional two- dimensional paintings, become three-dimensional instead.
Instead of flat plane, the application of creatively malleable forms and textures of concrete leads to a whole new world in the fine arts. Concrete, its installation on canvas, and the daring usage of colours encourage the creator to constantly experiment and innovate. Its plasticity encapsulates an infinite design, figurativeness and non-figurativeness. For the creation of Dalma’s works, initially, external influences, emotions and thoughts provide guidance and creative desire, which lies within her as a core of pictorial ideas. This intuitive inner image, that is constantly contoured on the canvas and then the initial tangle becomes a harmonious whole.

Olya is an artist born in Russia, currently lives in Budapest, Hungary. She has studied in art school when she was a kid, holds a bachelor’s degree in Design. Although that gave her necessary art skills, she is still considering herself a self-taught artist. As her creative process and education are mostly intuitive and driven by her own need to express her feelings and need to create. Creativity in its different forms was always a part of her life, but seven years ago she’s decided to take a path of a full-time artist.
When she started her art journey she was mostly working with watercolors and portraits, and as her practice grew and developed she came to what excites her the most: raw canvas and fibers, water mediums, stained washes opposed
to graphical machine or hand embroidery. The artworks are expressing her love to nature in its power and serenity in the same time: fog, moody skies, mountains, rain and storm are her favorite subjects to paint.
The purpose of her creative journey is to find harmony in every piece. Textures, colors, shapes, touch – balancing all of it is what her practice stands on. And if looking at her artworks you feel a little bit more serene – that’s it, she’s succeeded.
