I spent most of my life developing my artistic skills in many different types of media including digital art, oil paints, acrylic, graphite, epoxy resin and more. My attachment to pyrography dates back to my childhood. At first I saw this technique from my dad, I was immediately conquered by this art. In my 20s, I decided to actually orient myself in the direction of art.
In 2010 I graduated from the University of Nyíregyháza with a basic degree in visual representation, majoring in painting where I was able to gain a deeper insight into the world of sculpture, graphics and painting.The first milestone in my life was when I came across the first pyrographic tool of my life in a shopping mall on Christmas of 2013. I learned the tricks of the technique in a self-taught way.My first exhibition "The Art of Fire" was hosted by the Nyírtelek City Library in 2014, where my wood-burnings and other works were also presented (digital drawings, oil paintings).In most cases, I burn on birch and poplar plywood.This technique is time consuming and requires a high degree of precision, in any case for portrait burning. An A / 4 image takes about 20 hours to make, but I love every moment of the process.
In 2017, one of my pyrographic works (Self-Portrait) was included - with the help of the editor of the American Fox Chapel Publishing - Jo Schwartz's Woodburning Realistic People book.
My work so far can be viewed on social media sites, and I make videos of the progress, which I upload to my youtube channel as well. In addition to start my own business, my goal is to write my own pyrography book about burning of Portrait.
Creat something, something unique and special- this is what pyrography- "the art of fire"- means to me.Valeria Huszti
