Tamas Laszlo Kovacs is one of the most original talents of the younger generation, his career has been developing logically in front of us, one hand from his previous art-efforts, and other hand from his local and international experiment of art. His peculiar field, the metal-sculpture – or as an earlier inner sight the colourful, painted sculptures, or nowadays the silvery-shiny steel constructions, what are conserving the original brightness of the materials. Both of the techniques are representing a specific stylar approach, what originates from the Russian constructivist expression of the 1920’s.
Tamas Kovacs has recreated and interpreted the early avantgard thinking with the firm knowledge of the constructivist traditions, and modernised its solutions. The logical build of the colourful or luster structures, its reduced, clear world of colours, its particular silhouette effects are making him an unconventional artist. His large-sized paintings, what are crafted in a similar mood like his other art pieces, and are based on the same clear harmony of lines are luckily supplementing the impression of his sculptures. But beside the Russian origins, he is heavily connecting to the Hungarian ones too, just to mention the greatest names like Lajos Kassák, or the internationally famous Moholy-Nagy László or Schöffer.
