Márton Nemes


Tomorrow 13, 2019, acquired by Ludwig Museum, Hungary in 2021


Echoing rave culture and street art, Marton Nemes creates colourful, fluorescent and reflective artworks that combine intense visual beauty and engineering craftsmanship. Beyond the opulent surface lies his contemplation upon social media phenomenon and contemporary metropolitan life, capturing the excitement and a sense of anxiety, sorrow, decay and escapism. 


Born in 1986 in Székesfehérvár, Hungary, Márton Nemes studied at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, later completing his Master of Fine Arts degree at the Chelsea College of Arts, London in 2018. Márton Nemes was the Artist-in-Residence of  BuBu Artist Residency Program with Buffalo Arts Studio in New York, USA in 2019; at Westport Arts Center, Westport, USA in 2015; and in Salzburg, Austria in 2014.


Based in London, Márton Nemes is a multimedia artist who creates paintings, sculptures, installations and sounds. His works are rooted in technoculture and represent breaking away and escape. To go beyond the constraints of two dimensions and create an exit from the ordinary, he uses colourful, techno-inspired surfaces, lights and music. In his New Tomorrow series, backgrounds are built up using layers of spray paint, echoing graffiti artists’ use of aerosols to create their art.
