Boglárka Nagy (born 13 October 1990, Vác) is a Hungarian painter. Widely acclaimed for her work, she is one of the outstanding contemporary representatives of realist painting in Hungary.

Her biography

Boglárka Nagy spent her childhood in the town of Vác, where she showed her talent for art at an early age. She completed her secondary school studies at the Boronkay György Technical Secondary School and High School in Vác between 2005 and 2009. During this period, he already showed a strong interest in painting and participated in the Art Lavina Art Studio.

Between 2009 and 2012, he graduated from Eszterházy Károly College in Eger, Hungary, with a degree in Fine Arts - Painting. This period was a milestone in her development and gave her the opportunity to deepen her technical skills and find her individual style. After successfully completing her degree, she continued her studies abroad.

In 2012, he was admitted to the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. In 2013 she participated in a training course organized by László Gyémánt Atelier in Budapest.

From 2018 to 2019, he was a member of the Paris Academy of Arts (Paris, France), and in 2021 he was admitted to the Florence Academy of Arts (Florence, Italy), one of the world's leading art institutions.

In addition to regular solo and group exhibitions, he has been successful in Hungarian and international auctions. One such occasion was the Sotheby's London 2016 auction '20th Century Art - A Different Perspective', where his work 'Summer Love' sold alongside names such as Lajos Kassák, Attila Szűcs and Judit Reigl. He repeated his success at the same auction in 2019 with 'My Name Is White'. He was the first Hungarian artist to be included in the LUMAS international portfolio in 2017.

Boglárka Nagy is not only active in the world of self-expression. She gives students and young artists the opportunity to participate in her trainings and workshops, where she shares her knowledge and experience, contributing to the artistic development of the next generation.

Her art

Boglárka Nagy's works represent the trend of realistic painting, capturing mainly the fullness of life and human portraits, sometimes in a lighter, pop-artistic tone, sometimes in a deep and lyrical way.In her paintings she puts great emphasis on the relationship between light and shadow, using it not only as a means of expressing rich visual contrasts, but also as a means of conveying spiritual values in her art.

Perhaps his best-known main series 'LIGHT WATER FLOW', from the start of his independent career, has been continuously expanded with new paintings since 2013. Within these, there is a particular emphasis on his sometimes frivolous and provocative, sometimes deep and sensitive portraits and portraits of people. This includes his 'VENUS' series, which deals with female identity and body image in the 21st century, and recurring motifs in his paintings of the infinite sky, water, light, birds and fish, which symbolise freedom.

The 'ORIENTAL' series began in 2017, inspired by Boglárka's travels in Asia and the Middle and Far East. These paintings are about freedom, the inner happenings of the soul and the move away from Western consumer culture. They do not pass judgement, but show things or tell stories in an observational way. Both the colours, the themes and the expressions are more sensitive and lyrical than in his 'LIGHT WATER FLOWING' series. These works have a spiritual, transcendental aura and incorporate a number of important oriental symbols such as the koi, the lotus and the figures of the geisha and samurai, which embody masculine and feminine qualities.

The 'FLOATING SILK' series is linked to this trend. These works, mostly large, depicting floating, patterned silk scarves, show many repetitive motifs arranged in a spectacular array of abstractly oriented forms. In the process of creating these paintings, the emphasis for the artist is on meditative contemplation, experiencing a state of flow and dissolving the figurative world.

By her own admission, Boglárka Nagy draws from life's impressions and the depths of the self in the process of creation, seeking a connection with the transcendental. For her, painting is an inspired, spiritual, pure and creative process. Not only a vocation and self-therapy, but also a sense of mission to bring beauty and change to the world through her art. Her work represents inclusive art. She believes that art and beauty are not just a privilege for a narrow, savvy circle, but can be a part of every person's life in some form. Through her work, she inspires people to create and to exist creatively and joyfully, giving form to her inner universe and capturing life in her own unique visual painterly language.

In the same year, he participated in the KulturKontakt Austria artist-in-residence programme in Vienna.

In 2012, he was awarded the Erasmus scholarship
