painter | 1976, TÃrgu Mures, RO

He graduated in graphic art from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2000.
His masters were Alajos Eszik, Imre Kocsis and Ferenc Kis-Tóth. He participated and worked as an assistant lecturer in the Regional Talent Scout Programme until 2004.
He taught visual education at the Arts Management Department of IBS Budapest from 2008 to 2012.

Levente Herman, who is one of the founding members of the Artists-Site of Élesd had numerous successes to be proud of recently. His works became part of significant collections such as the Hungarian National Gallery, 21c Museum, Louisville (Kentucky USA); and in 2012, in the Zsolnay District’s m21 Gallery his works were exhibited in a 1000 m2 open venue, followed by Edward Cutler Gallery in Milan (I) and in the Zorzini Gallery in Bucharest (RO). His works can be found in significant art collections around Europe and America, as well as in private collections in London, Brussels, Miami and New York. His paintings are dominated by a sombre and playful atmosphere hidden in the small details. The main motives of his works trace out a kind of personal iconography. His works do not aspire to a realistic representation of reality but offer another world impregnated with memories kept of reality.
