“I love playing around with materials and finding new ways of using classical art substances.”
Agnes Zaszkaliczky is Hungarian born visual artist based in Vienna dedicated to paint portraits. Her technique was acquired from Russian Masters including Caravaggio School.
She expresses in her portraits not only the technical challenge if not the soul of the subject reflected in every face and expression.
She is not only inspired by the beauty of her black models, but also by the personal story behind them, which she always finds interesting, as the personal relationship developed with her models.
She met Kaphia in Hungary, where she arrived from Somalia when she was 14 years old. Since then, she has pursued a career as a model and achieved success. Hungarian folk motifs and patterns can be seen on her clothes, which symbolize her new home, a fresh start, and an opportunity.
She has exhibited in USA at Art Palm Beach and various national and international exhibitions including solo shows in Hungary.
