Biography:

Aron Barath, born in 1980 in Novi Sad, former Yugoslavia, is a Hungarian painter living and working in Budapest, Hungary. Barath is best known for his abstract paintings, marked by colour and the seductive qualities of paint as a substance.

Art historian and art critic Rona Kopeczky describes the artist as a chromatogologue and a chromatophone, handing over his place in a noble manner to the colour. The colour dictates the gesture of the artist, freeing itself from contemporary visual culture or communicational trends. What is left is pure, genuine and truthful. Light, substance and colour.

Aron Barath has had group and solo shows predominately in his home country Hungary. However, the past three years his work has been noticed and lauded internationally, resulting in exhibitions in Warsaw, Poland; Miami, the United States of America; Vienna, Austria and now also in Kortrijk, Belgium.
