Born in Hodmezovasarhely, Hungary, in 1905. He began his art studies under the supervision of Janos Tornyai, a Hungarian master of the 20th century. At age 15, the town held an exhibition of his paintings in the movie-theater. At 21 he began his journey through the world with a trip to Italy where he made landscapes of his homeland to sell on the streets for money. He opened a studio in Milan with the help of a generous mentor, and worked there until 1942 when he was forced to emigrate because of WWII. In 1956 he moved to NYC where he exhibited with Frank Lloyd Wright.
