Product description

Vásárhelyi was born in Satu Mare, Romania, studied interior design and graphic design at the University of Fine Arts in Bucharest, and moved to Hungary in 1979. Between 1979-1982, with interruptions, he was the artistic director of the Young Artists’ Club in Budapest, organising exhibitions and co-artistic programmes. In the mid-1980s he was involved in the organisation of the international exhibitions Experimental Art and Art Today I-III. In 1988 he became editor of the social and art magazine Hiány, which played a significant role in the creation of political and artistic pluralism in Hungary. In 1998, he organised the exhibition Hommage a` M. C. Escher, and in 1999, with the support of UNESCO and ICSU, the exhibition Science in Art – Art in Science. He is a member of the Association pour la Promotion du Patrimonie Artistique Français and the Berufsverband Bildender Künstler. His large-scale, geometric, mostly black and white works, most often composed of architectural elements, are characterised by solutions influenced by the illusionistic spatialisation of M. C. Escher, often associating abstract forms with figurative details, and by an objective, coolly analytical tone enriched by ironic or dramatic moments.
