About the works

Péter Ujházi’s oeuvre has been unbroken for over 40 years: despite his diverse artistic activities one can observe that his specific artistic world formed in the 70s has not changed substantially over the years. The elemental narrative character of his works is strengthened by the different texts and inscriptions appearing on his works. The particular, multi-perspective view of his paintings, and their special spatiality led straightly the artist to create boxes and sculptures. In the stage-like world of his boxes and clay sculptures the two dimensional figures of the paintings almost come to life, but the basic characteristics of his oeuvre, such as the lightness and playfulness, also appear as well as a grotesque view of the world and sour, critical approach.
