Bartos Saro uses a technique taken from the world of music to create synesthetic landscapes. The plasticity of his work is enhanced by his unique painting technique. The texture of the painting is vivid, tangible, almost touchable and very sensual, created by covering the painting surface with sand. The accents in the picture are made by use of metallic pigments.
His work focuses on the structure of materials, he prefers to work in various media. By clearly presenting weight and movement, Bartos loves to create tension, dramatic, syncoped movement, for he believes that there is spirit in matter - shapes and forms can reflect basic emotional experiences.
Thick layers of raw, often cracked texture are strengthened and gain unique beauty thanks to the additional drawing and lightly applied colors. One of Bartos Saro preferred materials is sand mixed with acrylic binder.

Based in: Bristol
Bartos Saro’s life is very structured, organized but not in a confining way. So are his paintings. Sculptor and art historian by profession, Bartos Saro studied in his native Hungary and Great Britain. He started in modern design, made it to the level of partner in a furniture showroom company where he could put to work his methodically working but open mind. The level of corporational restraint and pressure was not appealing in the long run. Fascination with structures and materials in design took finally over and passion led him to the painting of matter. Bartos used to keep a studio in London, but finally moved to a more quiet place near Bristol where he can tend to his small japanese maple trees. He believes, he matured there.
