Enamelist, fire enamel artist.
"I worked as teacher in drawing, advertising graphic artist in the machine-tool industry and I taught enamelling art in Austria, Germany and Spain. During a five year long period I led a professional theatre as well as a folkdance group. Since nine years back I am the director of the Culture House in Székelyudvarhely. In parallel with this, I teach enamelling art in my home town, and occasionally in Soltvadkert, KiskĆrös and Keszthely (Hungary), Hildesheim (Germany) and La Coruna (Spain)."- Gyula Elekes
I studied graphic art in Marosvásárhely (Romania) and graduated from high-school in 1979. I started to experience with the art of enamelling in 1980 and this process is still kept on. Later on I studied in German and Spanish private schools and at workshops. During the period 1990-2007 I was invited and participated every year, except for one occasion, at the International Symposium of Enamelling Art in Kecskemét (Hungary). I have received great help to improve my professional knowledge from the painter artist Endre Turi and the art historian Gábor Pap. Furthermore, I got the opportunity to work - as sponsored participant - one month per year, during the period 1990-1994, at the International Workshop of Art of Enamelling in Kecskemét (Hungary). Since five years back I have received a yearly scholarship from the National Cultural Foundation (Budapest). I was on a work- and study tour in Germany (1992, 1994, 2001), invited by the enamelling artists Hiltrud Blaich and Bernward Horn, and in Spain (1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2004, 2008), invited by the enamelling artist Julia Ares.
A marosvásárhelyi MĆ±vészeti Líceum grafika szakán végzett 1979-ben. 1980-tól zománcozik, 1990 óta rendszeres résztvevĆje a kecskeméti Nemzetközi ZománcmĆ±vészeti Alkotótelepnek, illetve ösztöndíjasként az AlkotómĆ±helynek. ZománcmĆ±vein szülĆföldjének, a Székelyföld népmĆ±vészetének (festett kazettás mennyezetek, székelykapuk) motívumvilágát és annak szimbolikus tartalmait dolgozza fel, értelmezi újra. Munkái magasfokú iparmĆ±vészeti igényességet tükröznek, a különféle zománctechnikák (festett zománc, rekeszzománc, sodronyzománc) alkalmazása gyakran társul a szabadon maradt vörösréz recipiens aranyozásával vagy polírozásával, ill. egyes alkotásokon applikációkkal (fémek, drágakövek).
