Attila Orbán

In the majority of Orbán’s paintings the objects recall an archaic world. Looking at them from a distance the shaping of the figurative faintly conjures up the artistic legacy of synthetic cubisms.

The outstanding role of the „primitive” ancient mask is made up of Australian, Polynesian, Mexican, Indian, and African works of art, highlighting some of their structural or decorative elements.

Special mention must be made of some technical feats. Thus the fact that the artist presses the paint out of the tube straight on to the canvas contributed to the birth of the calligraphies, creating a unique effect with the sheer volume of the relief-like shiny paint. His colours breathe life and the radiating yellow of cadmium haunts the visitor for quite a time.
