Janos Kardos was born in 1946. It was in Budapest where he completed his preliminary art courses. He left Hungary in 1970 to pursue further art studies in countries such as Sweden, Germany, Italy, and Spain. It was during these travels that he developed his signature abstract expressionistic style.
Today Kardos lives between New York City and Caracas. He is regarded as a unique and distinct figure in the international art community ad his works are recognized and appreciated by critics and collectors alike. Despite having lived in a variety of places, his artworks remain largely uninfluenced by his circumstances. Kardos explains that his abstract expressionism comes from "a deeper realm of being." His style is an authentic representation of his way of experiencing life at a deeper level.
