TÓTH LEA


From young ages visuality got a big emphasis in her life.

She is interested in the truths hidden behind the physical appearances. Her life is primarily directed, motivated by these realities. In her limelight stand the diverse trend-lines of art. Her innate abilities and skills have been nurtured and developed by several masters. She was involved in different trainings. After completing studies in trans-personal psychology she was admitted to the architecture department of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest. After receiving a master’s degree with a diploma award she began to walk an independent path as a freelancer, and started to search for opportunities to develop.

Before and after her graduation she had professional experiences at archticeture interior-design area. In order to understand the realized connection among the various disciplines of art she started creative work in different fields, involving in these pieces her interest in other cultures, roots, traditions. Her works have appeared at several architectural and art exhibitions in her native country and abroad as well.

As a designer – creator she is open to any fields of artistic expression with a teaching nature. It is the combination of manual and intellectual processes that captures her to the core. The co-existence of the spiritual, intellectual and material layers. She has an inner drive to express her feelings in the course of a creative artistic process. Three-dimensional artwork has always been a part of her life. She believes in the essential need for a creative attitude to life. In her work she mostly relies upon her feelings and emotions, they lead her hand in the creative process.

She believes in continuous flow and constant change and she wishes to express this dynamism in her works of art. She processes universal questions, stations, concepts, human feelings by using different materials together. The motions of silence and harmony are the material manifestations of her inner feelings. Her works convey transformed messages the understanding and free interpretation of which she leaves to the viewer. The purpose is to initiate emotional, thought awakening.
