Melinda Matyas

Melinda Matyas

Born: 1976

Hometown: Huedin

Based in: London

Melinda Matyas is a London based artist. She was born as an ethnic Hungarian in Romania in 1976 and later she moved to England. In 2009 she graduated from the University of Art and Design, Cluj-Napoca receiving her BA in Fine Art, Painting. Her interest in psychology and her research for understanding the source that adds meaning to ones life is one of the major influences in her work. Her main focus is the human condition, the internal world one experiences amidst the expectations of society.

In her creative process colour and texture are equally important, as well as the deconstruction of forms which allows her to find an equilibrium between figuration and abstraction.

More About Melinda Matyas

IconInspires

What inspires you?

I'm inspired by everyday life and everything related to people, I'm fascinated by the human psyche.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I mostly paint in oils but sometimes I tend to use other mediums as well like ink, gouache, watercolor, charcoal, I love to experiment with different mediums. Color is very important to me and I'm aiming to create dynamism through color each time I sit in front of a canvas. My creative process starts with making sketches having a model or taking photos of a model. After I cover the canvas with the first layer of paint I no longer need the model but I'm working freely and that’s when creation really starts for me.
