Laurence Slárko is a French artist with Hungarian roots; she graduated from the Institut d'Etudes Supérieures des Arts in Paris, where she completed a degree in Arts and Civilization and Techniques of Painting.
She studied art in Paris, in particular drawing with the sculptor and art teacher Valentina Zeïlé. Laurence Slárko completed her knowledge by learning Chinese drawing and Chinese calligraphy in Shanghai. In the Hague, she studies graphics with the painter and drawer Maja Ilic.
Laurence Slárko admires more particularly the work of the Italian and Flemish Primitives, the drawings of Albrecht Dürer, the creativity of Odilon Redon and the Italian Futurism, and the profoundness of Mihály Munkácsy.
Laurence Slárko is fascinated by water. Many of her paintings are influenced by the aquatic world that she discovered during her dives, and the proximity of the North Sea, where she lives.
Her work can be found in galleries, exhibitions and in private buildings. She exhibited in The Hague in the headquarters of ABN AMRO, followed by a private auction held by Sotheby's for a children foundation. Here work can be seen on this website.
She is now living in The Hague, The Netherlands.
