Ferenc Tulok was born in Budapest, Hungary on August 18, 1949. Although he always enjoyed painting as a passion, he did not consider that he could earn a living with his talent, so attended the Polytechnic University in Budapest graduating in 1973 with a degree in mechanical engineering.
He continued to paint while doing engineering work for several companies in Budapest. By 1989, the artist inside won out, and he began devoting his time exclusively to artistic pursuits.
For many years, his still-life art was limited to oil on canvas. In recent years he discovered the unique beauty of oil on copper – which adds unparalleled iridescence and shimmer to the rich colors he uses.
In addition, copper allows him to exceed the precision of other hyper-realistic painters; allowing him ultimate refinement in creating immaculate still-lifes. Tulok has exhibited extensively in Austria, Denmark, Hungary, Germany, England, Italy, France, and the Netherlands.
