MR. SIEGAL (60 cm x 60 cm) – 2014

This British blues, folk, country musician is blessed with an outstanding voice and talent. Either alone, or in a band, he is simply wonderful. In my opinion, he is a bit underrepresented in Hungary so that’s why I painted his portray in my own style…. Who knows, he might become famous now worldwide! :-)

The painting has been created on canvas by oil and acrylic paint.

[In the private collection of Péter Horváth]

He is the character of comic sketches and films, which were all inspired by him. According to some gossip, Heath ledger had to lock himself up in his hotel room for 6 weeks in order to understand this psychopathic character. I do not wish to understand him but I would just like to demonstrate the spectrum of characters who can be discovered in other comic sketches or movies (please do mind that I’m not thinking about the chubby batman series)!

JENNYASS (90 cm x 140 cm) – 2014

While I was looking at photographs, I found some old photos from World War II. Photographs from World War II (as well as others) have a major impact on me, but this photo was particularly impressive. A mule wearing a gas mask? And posing for the camera? Why? Because of pride? Or, to always remember what horrors mankind is capable of? I tried to tame or to transform this very strong image for the urbanist eyes of today.

It was exhibited at the pop-up exhibition called ’In eclipse’ at Fogasház in 2014.
