Dániel Kármán 
(b. 1991)

Dániel Kármán was born in 1991 in Jászberény. He graduated from the University of Fine Arts in 2019, majoring in graphic art, in the class of István Madácsy. In 2020, he started to build a studio with Márton Gresa under the name Birdhouse, which has already hosted four exhibitions. As a creator, he is part of the experimental artist collective Birds of Cool, founded in 2022, which has since presented collaborative works in group exhibitions at two institutions, including Q Contemporary. 
His solo exhibition 2two was on view at BarabásiLab Showroom in 2022 and his work Interrealism was displayed at the Tornyai Museum in 2021. 
In 2023 he had his first solo show at Einspach Fine Art & Photography, entitled Every Morning.

The content of Dániel Kármán's paintings is a combination of past experiences and his personal vision of the present. His figurative works are deeply personal, lyrical works, about the nature of memories and passing away. His compositions reveal a delicate balance between digital design and manual execution on the one hand, and painting and printmaking on the other. The technical structure, although purely painterly, refers to the visual nature of rhizography and screen printing. His graphic thinking and vision is also reflected in the juxtaposition of different layers. The backgrounds of the images often show details extracted from old etchings.
