At the beginning of his career, Sandor attended several art camps and over the years, countless international group exhibitions, he had one personal exhibition in Székely National Museum, Sepsiszentgyörgy, Transylvania, and one in the Hungarian capital, Budapest.
A full CV is available, please feel free to ask for more details if you may be interested.
During his career, Sandor designed unique handmade bags, he is involved in environmental & land art projects, painting, icon & fresco painting, and he is creating photos (both analog & digital), short films, and performance art. Often he is experimenting with rare things, applying chemicals used in photography on photo paper "painting with light". Sándor is interested to break the boundaries between concepts and he believes that some problems simply can’t be solved by singular means.
In the last years, Sandor is concentrating parallel on photography and on nature art, capturing the light in different, sometimes unusual ways, while he is creating his stone balancing Antenæ projects.
While he is using a variety of modern technologies, materials, and processes in each project his methodology is consistent. In a world that is constantly changing via incredible leaps in technology and unbelievable strains upon the environment, he is constantly questioning our connection to the land and he is even researching our loss of connection to that land.
Sandor believes that energy connects us within space and time to each other, to our planet and cosmos. Performance and ritual have always played an essential role in his work. He is finding peace and fulfillment in the creative process, especially when he is experimenting and combining different mediums.
Born and raised in Transilvania, however, finishing his studies in 2003, Sándor settles in Hungary where he is working as a freelance visual artist, painting and restoring frescos until 2013 when he is relocating again, at this time to Scotland. Between 2015 - 2018 he was a resident of Malta, but finally, in 2018 he decided to move back to Scotland, which at this time, definitely became his home.
Living and creating in Budapest, Sándor is developing a good financial background in making art. Eventually too late, however, with time he realized that basically he had just deviated from his path, therefore in the past years he decided to return to his roots and to create strictly as an artist instead of being treated as an art business.
If providing a service, or selling his art, Sándor knows exactly his own value, and asks for its price, however, if asked for it, he is constantly refusing to hand in a business plan, and this is often the end of that cooperation as according Sándor's beliefs, ART can be called many things but definitely not business! In order to give back to society, he is often providing his services for free.
Sandor Nagy is holding worldwide public and product liability, as well as professional indemnity insurance for up to £5,000,000.
