Csaba Fürjesi

1969, Salgótarján
Csaba Fürjesi's art delves deeply into the timeless inquiries of human existence, traversing the realms of reality and surrealism. With a keen eye for the nuances of everyday life, his pieces invite multiple interpretations within local and global contexts. His oeuvre is characterized by subtle yet profound shifts in thought, weaving together themes of memory, oblivion, and the convergence of past and present. Through evocative imagery and introspective narratives, Fürjesi's work serves as a beacon of individual expression within the tapestry of contemporary art worldwide. Since the 1990s, Fürjesi has been a fixture in both national and international exhibitions. His artistic journey has taken him to esteemed locales such as Salvador Dali's studio in Monterey, the Grafikwerkstatt in Dresden, and the Hungarian Academy in Rome. Over the years, he has pioneered large-scale graphic works and innovative series, notably contributing to the evolution of the multitype process. Fürjesi's contributions to the graphic arts have been recognized through prestigious accolades, including a scholarship to the Citè Internationale des Arts in Paris. Notably, he was awarded the Grand Prize at the International Graphic Biennale of Transylvania in 2010, followed by the Grand Prize at the Miskolc Graphic Triennial in 2020. The province of Salzburg further honored him with the Slavi Soucek Graphic Scholarship in the same year. Presently, Fürjesi serves as the artistic director of the International ArtColony Cered, while calling Salzburg and Budapest his home and creative havens.
