Das Nördliche Breitmaulnashorn vor dem Aussterben bewahren



Dear All,

I was raised in Africa - my father was a university teacher in Zaire and Mali. For that reason I have a special attachment to the Black Continent and its wildlife. Six months ago I was called by my nephew - who is a wildlife filmmaker. He told that rhinos are in extreme danger and probably I could help to save them if I can donate a painting.  I immediately agreed. There are many sad things happening in the world. That is why, whenever we can, have to do good things. If I can, I donate. I help good projects. And this was an opportunity to do something for Mother Nature - our main source of inspiration.  To paint however, I needed a touch. I asked Thomas Hildebrandt to provide me images. And one of them caught my attention. There was something in the eye of Nabiré. I thought this is what I need. In this look, there is the whole story.

This is an exceptional image. It felt good to make it. Now I hope it will help the rhinos - these magnificent and ancient creatures - to stay with us. Thanks to you and all the people trying to save our natural heritage.

My warmest regards,



My biography can be found on my website,  however to give you a brief introduction, I was born inBudapest in 1957 and graduated from the Fine Arts Academy of Hungary in 1986 with Masters qualifications in painting, anatomy and art history. My first artist appointment was as a graphic designer for the United Nations. I moved to France 

in 1988 and since then have exhibited numerous times each year internationally.
My classic technique reminiscent of Renaissance and Flemish masters is combined with a modern vision, to both portray and question the world of the 21st century through my personal vision, culture and emotions.
In the July 2007 auction at Mallet Japan Auction House, my piece Kelly in Fontainebleau was sold for 14,000,000 Yen, or 130,000 Euros. This was part of a collection with works by Picasso, Chagall, Andy Warhol, Lichtenstein, Miro, Zao Wou- Ki and Jasper Jones among others.
My work is currently part of major collections in Asia, Europe and America. Notably, my work is part of the collection of business tycoon Mr Takeshi Sekiguchi, with the work Lajos Bacsi, Triptych are on display in his Honolulu restaurant ‘Vintage Cave’ alongside Picasso’s 18 piece series Les Deux Femmes. This restaurant received some attention when it was visited by Barack Obama and his family at the beginning of 2015.

In 2005, the LVMH Group (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) commissioned a sculpture-painting titled Big Spirits. It was unveiled in the Palace of Versaille by Mr Christophe Navarre, CEO of the wine and spirits division, Moët Hennessy.
