Levente Szücs was born in Miskolc, Hungary in 1989 and lives in Germany since 2002. He studied independent painting at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and was honoured as master student of Prof. Herbert Brandl in 2015.
In his canvas works Levente combines obvious opposites such as abstract painting and landscape photography, idea and coincidence, plan and intuition, dynamic and calm. His complex artworks consist of several layers. Abstract painting with dynamic, large-scale brush strokes are merging with layers of nature sceneries, whose are based on photographs taken by himself. He transfers the torn fragments of the photographs from paper to canvas using a transfer medium, whereby the photographic paper is completely removed after drying.
Due to the numerous superimposed layers, Levente’s works unfold complex pictorial ideas with painterly depth and great luminosity.
