Painter. Graduated from the Hungarian Academy of Arts in 1934. His masters were Gyula Rudnay and László Kandó. He became friends with the poet Sándor Weöres in 1929. From 1935 on, he made a living working at applied graphics jobs and accepting stage design commissions. He designed many of the books of Sándor Weöres. Between 1949 and 1975, he designed exhibitions for museums (the Museum of Ethnography, the National Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Science, Technology and Transportation Museum). Between 1959 and 1969, he taught in elementary school. He presented his surrealist paintings first in an atelier exhibition in 1959. His organic abstract, lyrical surrealist painterly style evolved fully by the beginning of the 1960s. He was inspired by flora and fauna and ancient myths. He used egg tempera to achieve bright colours.
