Whenever I see one of their painting anywhere make me sure again that I could not imagine anything else dealing with. I try to paint the light. With knife or brush, on canvas or wood, the point is the capture. As everything came to life, and with the common dance of the shadow is born: the spectacle. The aim of spectacle is nothing other than to enhance the viewer’s pleasure, to transfer something “more”. Well I strive for this.
Nikoletta Kiraly (Király ) was born in Debrecen, Hungary. Her drawing talent was recognized at a very early age. She moved near Lake Balaton with her family in her elementary school years and finished her high school education in Keszthely. During these years she became the student of the painter Eörs Dókus, who started her on the rocky journey of oil painting. She has been working independently for over 15 years.
The artist would like to bring back, simple joy, simple smiles on to people’s faces, She has had several exhibitions in Budapest and in Hévíz, Keszthely, Söjtör, Székesfehérvár, Bábolna, Tiszaalpár and Ócsa.
She has been a participant of Hungarian artist group residencies for many years, at which she especially likes to paint outdoors. Nikoletta currently lives in Héviz.
I learned the basics of painting in my grandfather, Király Béla painter’s studio. Even today, when I feel the characteristic smell of oil paint, the old experiences revive, and the brush comes to its own life in my hands. I studied as a private student at Dókus Eörs painter. During the long years of work the excellences of Impressionism were and become my examples.
