He belonged to Simon Hollósy's circle in Munich.

He first went to Nagybánya in 1908 and moved into the town in 1923.

In 1916 he married Erzsébet Hevesi, a piano teacher, student of Béla Bartók.

In the summers he was engaged in painting murals for the churches in the region , therefore, winter landscapes are more frequent in his oeuvre.

The influence of Neo style is discernible in his paintings.

His mode of expression has qualities in common with János Krizsán's.
