"You can almost hear the music that plays through his paintings..."
Budapest, 9 January 2023 – Zsolt Hanyu's exhibition 'Symphony' can be visited in the ground-floor gallery of Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest until the end of February 2023.
Zsolt Hanyu was born in Nyírtass (Hungary) in 1975. He was interested in music and visual arts from a young age. He first learned to paint in a self-taught manner, and then became a pupil of several renowned artists, including Vladimir Volegov, whom he met at an art academy in Spain. Recently, he was a mentor for the "Talent deserves a chance" programme, during which, together with other noted painters, he taught painting to children living in state care for a year.
His exhibition 'Symphony' on display in the Kempinski Promenade Gallery was opened by Noémi Vészabó, a Leonardo da Vinci and Caravaggio award-winning painter and writer:
"The works of painter Zsolt Hanyu are pieces of a magical symphony. You can almost hear the music that plays through his paintings, sometimes more gently, while at other times, the sounds are uproarious and capture the human soul with great force. He can depict the shades of the musical palette with the same power as the silence in his other paintings, which is touching and leads the mind inwards to itself. His colours glow, his figures speak to you – they are alive. He brings these characters from the Ancient Memory with such convincing power that I think they are familiar. His art is unique and conveys emotions, because his goal is to leave messages in the human soul. The painter is a bridge between two eternities.
Anyone who gets to know Zsolt Hanyu's art and paintings will take along his exotic and elemental colours and figures, the pounding of horses, the golden sound of the cello, the touch of silence, the wonder of the world..."
Ar2day Gallery is the partner of Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest in the Promenade Gallery.
