Miklos Rogan was born in 1953, in Budapest, Hungary. He graduated from the famous Bela Bartok Music Academy of Budapest, more specifically in piano. He arrived in Canada in 1988 and established himself in Ontario. Gradually, he left his piano for his paint brushes. In 1994, he won the "Best Show Award" at the Cornwall Regional Gallery of Ontario. His work can be described as a perfect balance between movement, harmony, curvilinear lines and forms. Although Cubism had a strong influence on his work, his painting is also distinct from it in certain ways. Cubism gave him the formal liberty to explore his subjects without being bound to reality. The canvas structure and surface are important parts of his work, as they are for Cubism. However, he does not deconstruct, like the cubist painters, but tries to organize a very dynamic surface layout, where shape and color not only cohabitate to also interact with each other, thus leading our gaze towards visual explorations, through esthetics and a fascinating pictorial universe. His shapes are always stylized and are used to create associative and narrative connections with the different elements in the composition. Miklos Rogan exhibited in Vienna (Austria), Budapest (Hungary), Montana (USA), Cornwall, Waterloo, Aylmer, Ottawa, Belleville and Collingwood (Ontario) and in Montreal (Québec). He now resides and paints part of the year in Montreal and part of the year in Hungary. Important exhibitions of his work were presented in Vienna in 2001 and 2003 and in Montreal in 2005.
