Krisztián Tejfel is a self-taught Hungarian painter, focussing on classical portraits.
His works reveal the darker side of life, exploring emotions such as melancholy, depression, sorrow and loneliness. He skilfully portrays these feelings behind the facades of strong, beautiful woman. Often their faces apper incomplete. Tejfel’s works carry hints of surrealism, usually particularly visible in the details around the models’ eyes. All of Tejfel’s portraits balance between realism and its deconstruction.
