András A. Márton painter, graphic designer

(18 January 1930, Debrecen, Hungary)

1954: Graduated from the Budapest Technical University as electrical engineer. Autodidact
1955: Started studying fine arts
1978: since then he has been working as freelance graphic designer

Early works: dark compositions of philosophic and symbolic content constructed out of few lines on black backgrounds.
The end of 1980s: since then he has been painting. He is primarily inspired by natural sciences, especially physics, music and space-geometry (see Bolyai’s cycle). Analogically Márton tries to recognize “human laws”. His artworks are concise and surrealistic.
He doesn’t belong to any artists’ group.
