Ferenc SEBÖK began painting in 1971. Nevertheless, he began earlier to draw.
At the begining he painted landscapes and he preference was two seasons :
automn and winter.
After a "blue period" in the 70th with landscapes and nudes, he used cold or warm colours
to paint fine winter moods with oil, gouache or simply ink or "marines" with jellow-blue-green dominance.
He also drew nudes and landscapes with ink since 1980.
Progressively he took the way of symbolism, and since 1990, representations with allegory and esoterism
but alwyas taking the way of realism and not of abstraction.
His research becomes more precise with different themes :
Man in the Universe, his questions and his quest on the earth, the approach of
ineffable and inexpressible.
He also paints Boards for Lodges in different countries and smaller paintings or miniatures
representing symbolic geometry where he often uses gold or silver.
An other exploration and themes are the hungarian revolution of 1956 and the period of dictature
where he often uses allegory or symbolism.
He also paints nudes but with a symbolic mood.
Now he still paints sometimes landscapes but only when sombody makes an order.
Last but not least, after training with different Master of Iconography, he uses tempera
like the olds masters to paint Icons with a baroque influence.
He works at Liège (B) and Szàszvàr (H)
He is member of "Kastar" artists association of Budapest and member of Sabam (B)
