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).
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.
(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.)
