Biography

of Marika Pazsit

Marika Pazsit is today an active artist, living in Mölndal, just outside Göteborg in Sweden.

Her talent to paint in watercolour showed up already in her childhood, when at the age of 14 she won a nationwide competition for children in her homeland Hungary. Her winning work was exhibited at the  World's Fair  (EXPO) in Brussels in 1958. 

But Hungary of the 50's and 60's  was a tough place and time to live in, and to make a living as an artist was never a realistic alternative. Hence it would take her more than 30 years before she took the courage to resume her passion and realise her childhood dream to become an artist.

Born and educated in Budapest, Hungary, she moved to Sweden in adult age in 1984. Her profession as an applied mathematician with thorough computer knowledge was an asset, and led soon to a job in the Computer Centre of the energy research institute Studsvik in Nyköping.. It was here that, alongside her job, she started studying various painting techniques. For Marika has painting has always been - similarly to music and poetry  – inspiring, creative and something that makes one feel good. A relaxing contrast when one has a profession in a tough and competitive environment in the world of IT.

In 1991, together with her family she moved to Mölndal on the West Coast of Sweden, just outside Göteborg. There she found larger possibilities for artistic training and development,  and her childhood dream started to get realised as a hobby. Her fascination to the beauty and harmony of nature gave inspiration, happiness and energy.

 

"I love to paint, I admire the old masters, but at the same time I am very curious about the new experimental techniques. I had the good luck to paint for some fantastic artists and masters of visual image, which opened up the road for me to realise my dream. My intention is to induce emotions, to focus on intimacy,  and to appreciate the proximity to the small wonders of nature. I love the shift of the seasons, and I am fascinated by the nature in motion. I paint mostly landscapes with their colours, forms, moods and harmony. I am in a constant search for the secrets and the magic of nature, and my goal is to project my experience onto paper in an interplay between water and the colour pigments. I want to catch the moment that touches me. Things that affect me might induce a flow of thoughts even for other people. Painting - just as much as music and poetry - is a balm for the soul."

The list of artists who have inspired and influenced Marika is long, but the most influential were Prof. Jim Bray, Lars Eje Larsson, Bengt Jacobsson and Pia Erlandsson.

By transforming a row of artistic experiences to a number of individual and collaborative efforts, Marika managed to successfully share her creativity through exhibitions in a dozen of countries.
