Spring, 1998, Galambos, Tamas (Contemporary Artist) / Private Collection / The Bridgeman Art Library
Tamas Galambos is a contemporary Hungarian artis His idiosyncratic, sophisticated-naive style renders him a champion of outsider art. He combines the surrealist's free associations with a children's fairy tale fantasy, applying a work-intensive, ornamental, folklore-esque brushwork. His themes vary from mythology to politics to nature, with colourful compositions never short of a tinge of irony. From the 1960's onwards he has had solo exhibitions world-wide, from Tokyo to Los Angeles, winning various awards home and abroad.
