I am TakerOne from Hungary. I've been painting for about 17 years now, trying to take photo-realism to the next level. My goal is to avoid that plastic look many photo-realistic paintings have, and go for a more natural, really photo-like result. However, I'm also looking into taking my art, in general, to a next level in a visual sense as well. I'm very lucky to say that I've painted at a couple of very cool places around the world including London UK, New York, Los Angeles USA, Auckland NZ, also in Spain multiple times and even in Sri Lanka. I got to take part in a few group exhibitions, although I'm not a big fan of those, as street art belongs to the streets, and every now and then my works have been recognized by the mainstream media. I really enjoy transforming our built environment to a more livable, colorful, exciting place, and I'm happy to say that basically all of the feedback from the people on my works are positive.
