Personal details

Vámos István


30th November 1953, Miskolc

Curriculum Vitae:

I would like to become electrical engineer, chemist or graphic artist. Almost everything turned true, just a little bit different way. Instead of electrical engineer I became an electrician, instead of chemist chemical engineer, as an artist I became amateur graphic.

I took my school leaving exams at Piarist Grammar School Budapest. Then I learned as electrician at Miskolc for two years. Meanwhile I was drawing assiduously and tried to apply to University of Art and Design. Finally I ended up at Technical University of Budapest at faculty of chemical engineering. I received my degree in 1979.

Between 1981 and 85 I was a physics-chemistry and arts teacher at Franciscan High School Szentendre. Meanwhile I started a family, and I have four children.

I made illustrations and cover designs for publishers (Magvető and Tankönyvikadó) for 8 years.

Currently I am a teacher in my profession at Petrik Lajos Chemical High School. Also I work as a calibration professional of electroanalytical measurement tools.

For a long period I haven’t got enough time to draw, but see some change in my viewpoint. When I was young I saw everything in black and white, today my pleasure to paint, because I came to like colors.
