Gabor Svagrik
Hungarian born Gabor Svagrik immigrated to the US with his family and studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. He has also studied independently with a number of other painters.

He now conducts workshops at the Tucson Art Academy, which he founded, and through that venue brings many well known painters to the area for both studio and plein air workshops (see my recent post on Matt Smith).

Svagrik has created several instructional DVDs, which are also available through the Tucson Art Academy site. There are sample excerpts of the videos on both sites.

His website contains a selection of his available paintings, which show his strong compositional sense, carefully controlled color palettes and effective use of texture, along with a number of economically rendered oil sketches on paper.

Svagrik also maintains both a personal blog and a Tucson Art Academy blog.

(I was interested to note that in addition to Matt Smith, the roster of workshop instructors on the Tucson Art Academy site lists a number of artists I have featured here on Lines and Colors, including: Ken Auster, Kenn Backhaus, John Budicin, Joseph Paquet, Ray Roberts and Colley Whisson.)

  1. Minor nit – it’s the Tucson Art Academy. (Links are right, but spelling in the blog post is off.)

    1. Thanks, Bob. Corrected. I’m amazed at how easily I can repeat a typo multiple times (sigh).

  2. Thank you Charley to include me in your blog. I learned a lot by reading you posts. Keep up the great work!
