Károly Keserü was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1962. The visual artist originally studied to become an architect but was later influenced by the immediacy and freshness of drawing. He takes his inspiration from Hungarian folk art, aboriginal art, 20th century abstract art, and music. The grid and the dot is recurrent in many of his paintings and drawings. He also experiments with a variety of materials including thread.
The artist does not have a website but a bulk of his work can be viewed at Várfuk Galéria.

Love these minimized yet powerful paintings of UK-based artist Nathan Ford. The painter is known for his portraiture, still life and large urban scenes all created with a distinct style. The following quotes stand out on his interview with Passing Nightmare:
“Drawing and painting are inseparable in my world, drawing is key to everything I make.”
“Whatever I’m doing I’m fully engaged in – until it stops being engaging then I stop, because there is no reason to continue when the enthusiasm is gone.”
“I love what I do, I never chose it as a career, it just so happens it brings in enough money so as not to have to think career thoughts. I left school and started a yts apprenticeship in panel beating. I hated it, after a year my mum said why didn’t I do the art thing at college while I had the freedom and was living at home. So I did, I never planned to actually make a living out of it. I think if I had gone forward with the thought of money, my decisions my have been different.”
You can view more of his work on his website and on Beaux Arts.
