Watercolor artist Nándor Mikola (1911-2006) was born in Budapest, Austria-Hungary and did his life's work in Finland, mainly in Ostrobothnia. He studied graphics and painting in his native country as well as in Vienna and Helsinki. He lived in Finland since 1936.
The closest topic of Nándor Mikola's art was nature and its details. His favorites were landscapes, trees, branches and flowers alongside abstract subjects. He also liked to paint various still lifes. Several works move between the figurative and abstract arts. Creating and reducing the atmosphere was typical of Nándor Mikola`s artistic expression.
Nándor Mikola acted as a reformer of watercolor art and raised its awareness and appreciation.
