◯ Art

On his painting he used strange objects, or very strange movements and situations. The color of his 1970-1980s era was the blue, the lilac and their cold combinations. In the 1980s he made more female forms and still life. Since 1988 he painted mainly women.

Although István is considered as a hyperrealism artist, his art mixes the mood of surrealism. The attention to details of hyperrealism and the beautiful brush strokes of abstract art.
