Ferenc is the artist by nature. He was born in the year of 1980, in a small town in Ukraine near Hungarian border. From childhood he loved painting. And this creative skilled he inherited from his grandma, whose oil-painting of Buddha face he found later.
He was learning in The Carpenter College for a 3 years. And at the same time he helped his friend, a student of art school, with his home lessons. All friends around could see his creative potential, and after one year Ferenc decided to try own skills in art way. It was not an easy decision for a “village boy”. But he made his choice.
Finally he graduated Erdeli institute of Fine Arts and continued to work with interior design and air-brushing.
The time, when he first time opened for himself a psychedelic culture, changed his life and and turned his mind direction. Ferenc started to experiment with UV-active colors and realize his first deco-projects for festivals as a part of TranscarpatiaArts team. Same time he was very deep in discovering the tribal cultures and ornaments. He used it a lot in his art-works and got his own recognizable style.
At 2009 he met his “best part”, Xenia, who became his main partner and than a wife. Ideally complementing each other, they founded the art-studio by the name “Mangro Forest”. Now Xenia is his art-manager, the person, who participates in all processes of creation and gives a lot of ideas and inspirations for her husband. As well Xenia is the Indian classical dancer and performer. She works on own projects in this area and keeps a dance for herself as the most great meditation and joy in the life.
“In this days you can find in the treasure of “Mangro Forest” hundreds of realized projects in different areas as painting, wood carving, ceramic, interior design, landscape design, UV-active installations, etc… We apply the result of our experiments in nature to our artworks and the number of different materials, techniques and styles grow each day. We observe the nature as the biggest inspiration that leads us to discover new areas in art.
We like to travel and spend time in a countryside, far from megapolises. Our main life-style became a festivals, where you are free to realize any crazy project. Now we keep our focus on festival and event deco, uv-active painting, air-brushing and interior design for clubs and restaurants.
The Art is the way to be yourself. We believe that any art, as it’s a visual art, music or dance movements, can educate people and help them on the way to new levels of consciousness. Psychedelic art is always about “to be honest”, because you share your own very intim private experience and help people to experience new worlds. We believe that we can make this world little bit better, doing our art by heart. You can feel, each piece of our creation keeps live energy and love.
