"As a painter it was amazing to create abstract surfaces based on the influences of the
fashion industry, and change the regular habit, when fashion inspired by art.
In the new works of mine, I started to focusing into everyday eating and cooking “tasks”."
Ádám DÓRA was born in 1993, Vác (Hungary). He lives and works in Budapest.
He graduated at Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Painting (MA) in 2017. From 2019 to 2020
he was a Mentee in the Budapest Art Mentor Program.
The main body of his work - compromised mainly of oil on canvas pieces - is developed serially.
These pictures are often the interlaced consequences of each other. He plays with the repetition and variation of recurring elements. The apparition of these motifs in new contexts creates a
rich visual language that potentially has many interpretations.
During his painterly practices of contemplation, he is searching for answers to the questions
that are within the domain of painting, while reflecting on our present visual culture.
