“Soirée in the Red Garden”
A virtual exhibition by aatoth franyo | Cziffra Festival
10th. February, 2021 – 13th. March, 2021
In 1978, aatoth franyo moved to Paris with the help of Victor Vasarely, and he acquired his diploma at the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. It was György Cziffra, who helped him in the realisation of his first exhibition in Paris. Today, one can encounter his exhibitions nearly all over the world. The main elements of his works are the grotesque, essentially reduced figures and motives, through which the artist’s approach of the world and his message prevail. His pictures are often supplemented with written texts in Hungarian, French or English. Recently, nature has become even more emphatic in his artworks. In 2010, the music-loving and well-travelled artist built an atelier in the Thai jungles, where he has experienced the destruction of the jungle around him first hand. Thus, the satirical and grotesque scenes in his previous paintings were gradually replaced by natural elements, by which he reflects on environmental issues.
The online opening starts at 6 pm on the 10th of February 2021.
Participation in the online opening of the exhibition is free.
The opening will be streamed online.
We cordially invite you to join us in front of the screen at the time of the event. More information on the accessibility of the online stream and the virtual exhibition will be available soon.
(The exhibition is realised as a joint project of the Cziffra Festival, the Hegyvidék Gallery and the Várfok Gallery)
