The artist is offering twenty-two of his works. On canvas, figures come to life, birds appear, but there are also still lifes and landscapes. Árpád Kovács has selected his works from the last 15 years.

Speaking at the opening ceremony on the 12th of March 2022, Deputy Mayor of Debrecen István Puskás said that the war has shown that art can play an active role in addressing society’s problems, and this initiative is an excellent example of this. The painter feels that it is important to help because he and his family have experienced the hopelessness of flight. During the Romanian Revolution, he left his home in Târgu Mures more than thirty years ago.

“I would like to give back a little of the help we received then. I would like to help those who have come to nowhere because they have lost their homes and security,”  Árpád Kovács said at the opening ceremony. 

The exhibition will be open until the 21st of March 2022. During the opening hours, the purchased works can be taken away immediately. The money raised will be passed on to the victims of the Ukrainian war by the congregation of the Reformed Small Church of Debrecen.
