About the works

László Mulasics, a prominent figure of the Hungarian art scene of the ‘80s and ‘90s, began his artistic career at the height of the 1980s. His first works were figurative compositions characterized by intense gestures. In 1986, following a sudden change of direction he moved from the figurative towards the geometric, this was to result, one year later in 1987, to experimentation with various materials which lead him to use the ancient wax technique, the encaustic. In the course of time the name of László Mulasics was to become identified with this particular hot wax technique and he was to become its master. His characteristic motifs such as pseudo maps, ground-plans, archaic buildings, are replaced with art historical themes – hunting dogs, griffins -, physical illustrations, astronomical instruments and diagrams in the ‘90s. In the second half of the ‘90s, his handling of patterns bare the legacy of Pattern and Decoration, while the writings on the paintings, theoretical researches are on the edge of conceptual art.  In Mulasics’ final years the implementation of vivid colours and the revitalization of organic ornamentation, mixed with scientific drawings or geometrical structures, are the signs of a new period which was only to be interrupted by the untimely death of the artist.
