Art?

Living and creating in Budapest, Sándor is developing a good financial background in making art.

With time, Sandor realized that basically he had just deviated from his path, therefore in the past years he decided to return to his roots and to create strictly as an artist instead of being treated as an art business.

How?

Sandor believes that energy connects us within space and time to each other, to our planet and cosmos. Performance and ritual have always played an essential role in his work. He is finding peace and fulfillment in the creative process, especially when he is experimenting and combining different mediums.

Why?

While he is using a variety of modern technologies, materials, and processes in each project his methodology is consistent. In a world that is constantly changing via incredible leaps in technology and unbelievable strains upon the environment, he is constantly questioning our connection to the land, and nowadays he is researching our loss of connection to that land also.

What?

During his career, Sandor designed unique handmade bags and was involved in painting, icon, and fresco painting, he is creating photos (both analog & digital), short films, and performance art. Often he is experimenting with rare things, painting with chemicals like the developer. He is interested to break the boundaries between concepts and he believes that some problems simply can’t be solved by singular means.
