Sándor Nagy was Born in Sepsiszentgyörgy, Transylvania (Romania). After he finished his studies (Visual Art and Painting Department, School of art Brasov, Romania) in 2003 he settles in Budapest (Hungary) where he is working as a freelance visual artist, painting and restoring fresco’s until 2013, when he is relocating to Scotland.
Between 2015 and 2018 he had a private residency in Malta, but finally he decides to move back to Scotland.
At the beginning of his career Sándor attends countless international group exhibitions, and he had one personal exhibition in Székely National Museum, Sepsiszentgyörgy (RO) and one in Budapest (HU), it seems he is developing a good financial background making art, but he realised that basically he is just deviated from his road so in the past years he decided to retreat and create as an artist instead of being treated as an art business.
During his career he designed unique handmade bags and he is involved in painting, icon painting, photo, video, and performance art. Finally, he returned to his favourite medium (oil) and along painting in the last years he is concentrating parallel on digital and nature art, creating his own stone balancing projects in Romania, Hungary, Malta and Scotland.
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 our loss of connection to that land.
He 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 fulfilment in the creative process, especially when he is experimenting and combining different mediums.
