KISSER, the late NYROM
was born in Budapest in 1944.
She started her studies at
the Secondary School of Visual Arts in Budapest, then from 1964 she studied in Vienna
at the Academy of Fine Arts where she completed her studies at the Master School of
Professor Fritz Wotruba in 1968.
She spent her coming years with the ambition of artistic self-realization, she
presented her works, paintings and sculptures at several international exhibitions
(Basel, Budapest, Madrid, Padua, Bonn, Vienna, Varese).
Even then she found
self-training and personal development very important, therefore she spent her time in
Egypt and Turkey on scholarships.

works at her first own exhibition under the name NYROM, and gained international

perpetuates the spiritually incomprehensible, as she puts it „the light” in its natural
She borrowed her profession of
faith from Robert Schumann:
„To send light into the
darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist.”
„Her walk of life has come to
completion, throughout the seven years of path-finding she created her new world of form,
re- inventing the late NYROM once and for all. The two artist has become one, the
symbiosis was done, the metamorphosis was complete.
