About the airbrush:
I have been painting with airbrush for more then 20 years. This is a special technique when the artist is using a small air-operated tool (spray gun) as a brush. The first airbrush, depending on the definition, was patented in 1876 and is still present in graphic design and painting as visual art form. To aquire the use of a spray gun takes substantial time and everyday practice for years and for this reason not many people capable to us it at high level. Airbrush can perfectly be used to create photorealistic paintings. I exclusively use airbrush on my paintings, never traditional brushes. As I am a qualified photographer with a degree I take all the photos used for my paintings.
Tamás Mike is THE realistic man. Reality is all that I am interested in, that’s why I paint it. This is an incredibly interesting game where, through my hands, the colours form into a image: a painting that is perfectly realistic but it's not a photo. It's more than a photo - it's art. My challenge is to take a little piece of the world and to reproduce it by applying colours: to dream it on a canvas. I'm a realistic man, I paint photorealistic pictures and this is what makes me happy.
