Colors and structures - an exhibition by László Csízy



László Csízy lives in Budapest, Hungary, but he was born in Rimavská Sobota, Slovakia. His parents were teachers in Silica, Slovakia, but in 1949 they were expatriated to Újpetre, Hungary, near Pécs. Even though he is an electronic graphic artist, his roots go back to his freehand drawing studies. He used to work in the Visual Workshop of Pécs, Hungary, under the supervision of Ferenc Lantos, his teacher of painting. In 1967 he graduated as an electrical engineer, then he worked in the field of telecommunications until his retirement. He made his first computer graphic art with a desktop plotter and a low-power calculator in 1983. After a few years′ pause he has been doing computer graphic art intensely since 2009. These are images made with electric and electronic means, displayed in the premises of Rovás Academy (Kmeťova 34, Košice, Slovakia) until 30th September. 


One might ask why ever more artists like electronic tools. In the better case to remain modern and contemporary enough. Experimenting is another good reason - they want to know the limits of the tools. (Let′s not forget that a computer does what we tell it to do.) The worse case is that the artist does not have the necessary skills and/or talent. Computer graphic art also requires high-level skills; however, this knowledge is technical, i.e. anybody can learn it. 


Being a technical person, László Csízy had an affinity for the world of computers - but let′s not forget: what seems natural to us, was not natural at all in 1983, when he started his journey in the land of computer graphics. Evidently, he is a great fan of experimenting - the results are available to the public at this exhibition.

Feel free to take a liking in the results of the cooperation of man and machine.
