In this episode, we explore the work of István Orosz, the city of Budapest, and their blended, interwoven history.
A master of optical illusion, István Orosz is one of Hungary's most internationally acclaimed designers and artists. By utilizing multiple perspectives and planes of view, his style opens the door to the execution of deeply conceptual and visually engaging pieces. Whether it is in his posters, illustrations or prints, by blending reality, concept, impossibility and a creative use of materials, István's work confronts the viewer's preconceived notion of reality, shifting their point of view and forcing them to readjust their own perspective.
Special thanks to Mr. Orosz for his time and wonderful hospitality (and for letting me play football with him and his friends)
Additional thanks to the Hungarian Cultural Center in New York for allowing us to film and photograph at Mr. Orosz's opening last year.
