Laszlo Nemeth / HUNGARIAN, born 1965 ceramist artist & designer
When I was a child, I had often thought that it must be great for artists, living around the world, having an adventurous life. Although I had never thought that it could happen to me too. And so it did, and sometimes I can't even believe it. I had became an artist and I live here, in Corfu, on one of the many beautiful Ionian Sea's islands. I am inspired by lights, colors and surfaces in my works. I like clean-cut shapes, I often build in just found items into my creations. I like it, if my works are cultural records of past ages, but at the same time they're modern and progressive. I like the metallic effect, also corroded, dingy surfaces. I like if it shows on my works that it was made by hands, not by machines. I like to believe that with my art, I can create a kind of inter-generational, long-term appreciated objects, that we used to find in our childhoods in our grandma's cabinet. Last but not the least, I hope that my works can bring a bit of a taste of the Mediterranean lifestyle to your home.
