About Antal BÍRÓ 
(1907, Pozsony - 1990, Székesfehérvár)
French Hungarian abstract painter

Bíró was led by the symbolic meaning in applying the colors: red was standing for blood, the inner life. Yellow was the light, and the mauve was the genius. In the early sixties, a Menton journalist Jean Bomy asked why he became an abstract painter and replied, "Because I was tired of figurative images. During his search, the painter is liberated and purified. [...] The painter does not have to copy what he sees but must display what he feels. [...] Abstract and figurative paintings apply equally when it comes from within." His lyrical and gestational abstract paintings are part of the post war School of Paris.
