Gábor Szinte was born in 1928 in Hungary, he obtained his diploma in 1952 from the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest as a pupil of BERNÁTH AURÉL. During 1956-1958 he finished his studies in Italy at the Florence Academy of Fine Arts.

In his paintings, new-realistic ambition melts with surrealistic tones. He has numerous works of art in connection with architecture: wood inlays, mosaics, and stained glass.

Beside his successful activity as a painter, since the 1960s he has been interested in stage-design and has become one of Europe’s best in this media. He is a professor at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, and the University of Theatre and Film Arts.

Since 1951 he has exhibited internationally, having over forty one-man shows. His works are found in major Hungarian museums, such as the HUNGARIAN NATIONAL GALLERY, KING ST. STEPHEN MUSEUM , and the CHRISTIAN MUSEUM. There are numerous public and private collections of his works in Germany, Italy, Austria, Belgium, France, and the USA.
