Born in Hungary in 1955, Zoltan Preiner went on to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in his home town of Budapest.
During his studies, he was greatly influenced by the 17th century Baroque period painters such as Velasquez, Caraveggio and Vermeer and was equally fascinated by the lifestyle of that period.
Preiner’s tutors soon recognized his exceptional artistic talent and encouraged him to specialize in painting still life subjects where his skilful style would be suited to the detail and luminosity required.
A successful career followed with Preiner’s distinctive classical still life paintings featuring in exhibitions throughout Europe. Recent paintings have embraced a slightly more pared down contemporary style without compromising their classical origins and his international recognition and continued success is well deserved.
