Ferenc Vollein to Open 60th Exhibition in Keszthely


Ferenc Vollein meeting with Pope Francis in 2016.

Ferenc Vollein, a 24-year-old Hungarian painter, will open his 60th exhibition on August 9 in Keszthely, featuring his contemporary work.

“I am proud that such a large number of independent fine art exhibitions were held at prestigious domestic and international venues. At such a young age, at the age of 24, only I have succeeded in the history of Hungarian, European and universal art,” notes Vollein, summing up his last 13 years as a visual artist.

Vollein, one of Hungary's most renowned, internationally noted young visual artists will open his jubilee, 60th solo exhibition in Keszthely on August 9. At only 24 years old, Vollein is the first contemporary Hungarian painter whose work was included in the collection of the Vatican Museum, after Pope Francis personally received him in Rome a few years ago. In addition, more than 130 of his works are owned by domestic and foreign private and public collections.

Between 2015 and 2021, Vollein won the Young Talents of the Nation scholarship four times, as well as the accompanying title of Young Talent of the Nation. Four of his fine art issues were published, and he has won, or at least placed, at approximately 40 domestic and international fine art creative competitions.

Vollein’s 60th jubilee exhibition in Keszthely was organized by Mayor Jenő Manninger and literary historian Péter Szemes. It will open on August 9, 2023, in the József Simándy Hall of the Balaton Theater, at 6:00 p.m.
