Attila Cziglenyi works in oil, acrylic and watercolor. The subjects of his paintings range from landscapes to aviation and still lives to people. He was influenced by the brushstrokes and high key colors of Impressionist painters such as Monet, Renoir and Cézanne. During the past 15 years, he has enjoyed traveling to many European countries and painting en plein air.
His art education started in Texas at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and continued at Chabot College in Hayward. He studied printmaking at Laney College, Oakland and participated in many painting workshops and classes given by well-known artists.
Attila states, "With my paintings, I try to capture the moods created by the changing light, shadows and atmosphere in a landscape or express the exhilaration one feels at the sights and sounds of whirling propellers, or the roaring of a rocket. I am always looking for unusual shapes, lines and colors to best convey my message."
Attila's paintings have won numerous awards in local, national and international juried shows. His watercolors representing industrial landscapes are part of a corporate collection.
