My name is Szilárd Szilágyi. I am a self-taught Hungarian artist. I have been a member of the Association of the Hungarian Artists since 1985. Since my name was misprinted on a poster in Germany I have used Silaro as an artist-name. I was born in Siklós on June 13, 1959. My parents are both teachers. My mother later trained to be a psychologist. I attended schools in Pécs, Hungary where I also spent my university years. I was awarded a degree in law in 1983. It was during my university years that I began to take a serious interest in art. My first attempts were supported by Ferenc Lantos and Tihamér Gyarmathy. In my earlier period I produced works that were thematic in character. Later my works are the images of the inner memory. They create themselves through me. I am ignoring actual trends, my pictures are inspired by nature and social phenomena. My paintings are made in different sizes and mixed techniques. I had several exhibitions in Pécs, and Budapest, Hungary. I also had the chance to show my paintings in McCann - Erickson Gallery and in Gallery Arietta, Frankfurt-am Main, Germany, in Ader Tajan Auction House, in Paris, France, in Cascais, Portugal, in London, United Kingdom, in Venice, Italy and in Malmö, Sweden.
