I didn't have to particularly familiarise myself with painting because creation has been natural to me from my very birth. I am very grateful to my father, Rudolf Villásek, who passed on to me the "art techniques" which Béla Erdélyi had taught to him. My grandfather, János Erdélyi, was also a painter, the younger brother of painter Béla Erdélyi.
Ever since my favorite theme has been landscape painting. I am grateful to God that I was born here in the Carpathians, where I can put the beauty of nature on the canvas. Mostly I love the variety of autumn colors and the magical play of winter lights.
Art is not just about talent. The ability to create requires observations of nature. Also, you need diligence, strong willpower, dedication and determination. I am willing to keep going this way.
