He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Tibor Nagy

Posted by Charley Parker at 8:36 pm

Tibor Nagy
Tibor Nagy is an artist from Slovakia who paints his plein air landscapes and townscapes with brusque, rough edged shards and chunks of color.

Over a base of thinly applied darks he layers thick paint, sometimes with a loaded brush and sometimes apparently troweled on with a painting knife. These applications are mixed in with scumbled passages, painting knife scrapings and areas in which the underlying block-in is deliberately left unfinished.

The resulting compositions are energetic and lively, with the paint surface providing texture to the landscapes and cascades of geometric substructure in his portrayal of weathered buildings.

In addition to the galleries on his website, there are two YouTube videos that are essentially slide show walkthroughs of his process.

    I love the freshness in Tibor’s style of painting. The thick “chunks” of color do not obscure the detail which I find very attractive and enticing.

    Great boldness, simplicity, understands the medium. Great lessons to be taken in, just by seeing the work.
    I will reference this always.
