Ákos Ezer
(b. 1989)

Despite his young age, thanks to the opportunities given by the internet, Ákos Ezer is building a successful international art career. He graduated at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2014 and since then his unmistakable, energetic, still grotesque paintings were on display on numerous exhibitions around Europe and Asia. His works were provided by the Esterházy Art Award, 2017 and the K&H Art Award, 2016.


Ezer’s enormous canvases bring together new, expressive strokes and vivid colour contrasts that are settled in multicoloured patterns. On them, grotesque figures tumble upon each other creating Laocoon-group-like masses, filling out the large canvas areas. Usually, his figures are very characteristic because of the distinctive features that the artist gives them, such as long hair, huge noses and hands and expressive facial expressions.

Ákos Ezer lives and works in Budapest.
