MOJO [ENG]

MOJO (60 cm x 60 cm) – 2017

What is the mojo?

Etymologically, the word means charm or rather magic, however, nowadays we can use it for sexual attractiveness (sex  appeal), or for the ability to have effect on the other sex. We can win one’s trust with the help of the mojo, and also have influence on things, while making our way in life with the help of our charisma. It’s the way we represent ourselves to the world.

Probably, one of the worst feelings is the loss of mojo in one’s life, but believe me, mojo finds its way back to The Man!

Mojo can pulse, throb, it can be rousing; other times it slips gently, it’s smooth and honest, understanding; but sometimes it’s confusing, or poky. All in all, it’s GOOOOOOOD! Mojo is sexy! ;)

Don’t forget, all mojo has a man, and also a woman with it.

VIRTUAL INSANITY (90 cm x 140 cm) – 2017

In the midst of this modern world self-realization competition everybody wants to be something else, other than what they really are. No need to say that today’s consumer society provides all tools for this. The movies, the video games embrace the minds of people in 3D with high resolution as close to reality as possible. Tons of psychedelics are available, helping one escape the dull weekdays. Luckily, destiny brought one of its “everyday super-heroine”, – who is a drama queen in a male body – into my life.

I can’t believe that these tags can still be found on the streets of Budapest in 2016! I mean, I’m trying really hard to stay objective, but at the same time my duty is to hold a mirror up to society – who I travel with on a subway day by day. But I’m looking forward to the future with hope in my heart, because something’s gonna change sooner or later!

I’m sending this message out to everyone: THERE HAS TO BE CHANGE!

Dear Children, our topic today is feminity! Who could define feminity for me?

Noone?

OK, let me help you out!

Is a woman feminine if she wears a top, a baseball hat, a thick golden watch, masculine sunglasses, while making a selfie with duck lips? Or, is she girly if she wears a short dress, full make-up, high heel stilettos, expensive bags, and maybe a pocket Chihuahua? What about the girl next door, riding her bike in tight jeans? Is feminity an inner or outer feature? I bet it was way more unambiguous some years ago.

Those recently installed, numerous “Big Brother” cameras gained huge media attention lately in Hungary. Although, I have to add that such a system has already been in operation in Saint-Tropez….just that it was also mobile! And of course, it has an extra entertainment function!

At the peak of youth, before people turn 30, they start to visit doctors. Certainly, I’m not talking about myself, but about my buddy, who has various issues (and this is how the story begins…) :-) . This was my motivation during the making of this painting. I think it is very important to have a soulmate, who always stands by you no matter what, especially in case of an emergency. And the importance of this increases as time goes by….

Should I mention trends…

I came to Budapest, I’ve a beard, I ride a bike…am I a HIPster now?!

Look, how I walk! Swaag!

Watch, how I handle things! Swaaager!

Feel how I am judged by the world! Swaaaagest!

As those pigeonholes are created, most people draft an opinion…pleb, arts student, hippy, gothic, posh, hipster, punk, rocker, beggar, newly rich, etc.

But it doesn’t even matter how other people perceive us. Sure it DOES! Hell yeah! Everybody wants to belong somewhere, and then it’s not enough, they want to be role models.

So let’s straighten up MR. SWAGGER and let the world’s adulation in, because we do deserve it!

Everybody is autonomous nowadays for sure! All right I think most of people are. They are who overwrites the law because they think it’s not valid on them. 

We are rebelling again?! And nobody told me?!
Slowly developing a kind of confusion… or maybe just in my mind! :-)
However… we live once!
And run and dance and jump and scream
Or do anything, just to see you that you are alive

Go for robot-porn!

I read an article about people on death row. They don’t know when their time will come. Their soul is filled with pain and sorrow, they are destroyed,. They are prepared for everything and they have contemplated all worldly issues. We can only hope that we will never have to understand their perspective.

Hello. I worked on this picture for a whole year. The idea came from the following: I wanted to make a ROCK-ART from (SCI-FI) POP-ART… and who would be indeed the icon of Hungarian pop art if not Szabolcs Papp from the band called Supernem? He made it to my virtual wall and that’s how this piece of art was created, picturing a mural. The credit doesn’t only go to me but also to many of my friends whose signatures can be found on the painting. 

Merci!

Dance everybody till morning in a motherfucker bad shoes!

I do not promote the symbols and logos which can be discovered on this piece . They only made it to this piece because it portrays a part of a mural.

Male-centred world perspective? Yes, it exists and it has always existed! Furthermore, all evidence points to it too. But what do we want, us men?

We want to possess things
We want power
We want to be satisfied 
And sometimes we fight for these (or instead Of them?) 
Besides all men wants a lot of other things of course I just wanted to highlight a few determinative things.

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! :-)

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.

SHARE A KIM! (80 cm x 120 cm) – 2014

Kim Jong-il was the first man of the Korean People’s theoretically Democratic Republic (practically dictatorial republic leader), who as the Director of Culture and Arts, had endeavored to reform North Korea’s art. It is completely due to him, that North Korea’s first export articles were pieces of art most importantly. This is such a brilliant idea and way to Present and to promote the ideology of a nation, their wonderful life, to prove the correctness of their political viewpoints, and to advertise their cult to the whole world. Why would it be offensive that politics is usually the most crucial part of each artwork? Why should there be free will or freedom of opinion, why should we imagine much ado about nothing? Isn’t it great to see big leaders’ moments of excursions, their favourite flowers or a copped gesture of encouragement during a great speech, captured on a painting or on a sculpture? He (Kim Jong-il) supported the culture so much that he encouraged his son’s girlfriend, the singer Hyon Song-wolt to promote the culture. The girl abused his good intentions and the possibility (she made  porn and hid Bibles). It can be clearly seen that Kim Jong-il did everything in his power to set his republic on strong pillars, not being afraid of sacrificing Art , the most liberal sector, for his own goals. What a terrible loss would it be to the world if he hadn’t! Without these North-Korean pieces of art we could not appreciate individuality, creativity, provocation or freedom.

The bull fight is a contraversial topic in itself therefore it’s not a suprise that it’s devides peoples opinion. However, the people, who face the ultimate experience of death, which in this case is Embodied by a bull of 550 kg weight,and who want to entertain others, are either heroes or fools. For instance, here’s this guy, Jean Jose Padilla, who was once butted by a bull and as a consequence he lost one of his eyes and the rest of his face had to be stitched together by a 4-h operation. But then… Tada! He’s on stage?! Isnt it fascinating?!

We know a lot about Erwin and also about his cat. The alien nature of the prevailing law ruling the micro-world is also well known to everyone (or, if not, then it’s only yourself to blame!). The cat might be alive or dead, you might take a look at it or not…

The point is, that Erwin was not able to teleport, therefore he also had to obey fundamental rules of physics in case he intended to get from A to B. And, as a matter of fact, he is not the walking-type either. So, here it is, his bicycle, believe it or not…

The culture of the Land of the Rising Sun has made a great impact on me. The samurai, the fearless and ruthless, at the same time self-sacrificing warrior represents honesty and loyalty. An idol of manly behaviour, who would opt for death over dishonour in all circumstances. I admire Japanese people (they seem to be on a sort perpetual motion) but I don’t think I could live a life like that.

I dare to say this is the first painting that is ready for 4K! :-)

I have heard a great saying: ‘Everything is made in China and if any other country is written on a product that is a… fake!’

Probably my very first work.

I’ve been living in district 9 for six years and during this period Attila József has had a great effect on me (he was born only a few streets away from my place). There are plenty of graffitis and scribbles on walls in my neighbourhood – they also inspired my work.

One of the characteristics of society that everyone wants to belong to a sort of community. However today there are so many and all kinds of groups that it’s hard to keep up with them. One joins some or at least one of them even unwilingly. Marketing uses several methods to propagate that given ‘product’ which constantly bombards us with its existence. Since these ads are mainly presented in the forms of posters and bills, I also created a kind of ‘poster’. I wanted to show, using my own style, how easy it is to use ordinary people in order to demonstrate different kinds of ideas. Even if they didn’t live in the same age or have no connection to that actual idea.

It was exhibited at the exhibition called ’Unfold Dreams’ on the 17th Pszinapszis (Budapest Psychology Days) between 12-14th Apr 2013.

It was high time I painted something of Budapest since I stroll in the streets day by day and there’s a huge amount of impact which I use in my works. Excluding politics these are the things that occupy the people of Budapest (not to mention gossiping about each other – only joking, as a matter of fact they don’t tell on each other).

I launched this painting to be my first still life but I had to spoil it, since it has outgrown itself. Like every artist, I’m also fascinated by knowing what happens after death. For example, what happens to the social network profiles of those who die (they obviously can’t delete it themselves). It’s only a matter of time to start to see social network funeral ads popping up, friends getting together in the virtual space to commemorate the deceased and then a system administrator deletes the profiles.

It started as a very simple concept, but the impression of the graffitti walls has enchante me so much, that at the end a very complex creation was born. Punks are really not meant to be fathers – but this is only my personal opinion.

Berlin is the European New York for me though I have never been there, I imagine it like this. There is freedom to express art everywhere, one can meet something interesting, something unique in the streets time after time. Recently I have been visiting Berlin every year to get a dip of street art, it really makes an impact on me. I see Berlin like this. And anyone, who has spent more than few days in Berlin, can see what I mean (please confirm!).
