“As an artist, Marton Nemes embraces the dualities that surround him as a result of his personal experiences and socio-cultural background. Whilst his use of fluorescent, saturated colour and opulent, polished metals could be considered a rebellion against his conservative, austere upbringing in Hungary, he maintains within his work and practice a discipline and studiousness impressed upon him from an early age. Similarly, Nemes came of age during the peak of the digital revolution as part of the first generation of digital natives, never offline, yet he marries conceptual contemplations of his innate online existence with a perhaps unexpected passion for the material mediums of painting and sculpture that underpin his artistic output. Finally, Nemes studied industrial design at a time by when technological advancements in engineering and manufacturing had rendered many traditional vocations obsolete, yet he continuously strives to integrate both innovative production methods and more conventional craftsmanship into his artistic practice.”– Hector Campbell, Art Historian, Writer & Curator
