Ágnes Szépfalvi

1965 | Budapest, Hungary

Hungarian Painter.

Ágnes Széphfalvi studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Budapest (1984–1990). In her paintings, she deals with narratives of the lives of women (a melancholic bride in front of ruins, a diva, a love story, and girls at play). She thematizes painting as a subject and images from the media―the sources of her subjects can be found in films, advertisements and her own photographs. She focuses on content, which she favours more than style.

She draws her inspiration from Manet as well as Post-Impressionism, Symbolism and Surrealism, all while remaining original and constructing a unique pictorial universe. Her storyboards, created with her late husband Csaba Nemes, complement her subjects through the world of fortune and success.
