Anna Eszter Toth

Born: 1985

member since: 2019


Anna Eszter Toth is a Hungarian contemporary artist, living and working currently in Budapest. She was born in 1985, in Szolnok. After finishing a Teacher’s Training School in Szeged – where she was trained to become an art teacher – she continued her studies at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Budapest. Here she got a Master’s  Degree in Painting in the year of 2014. In 2012 she received the Jozsef Kiss-Prize and in 2016 the Barcsay-Prize.

Toth observes the visual situations surrounding her – created by human activities or by forces of nature –, that contain some kind of artistic quality or problem. She looks at these as marks which tell stories of their own formation, as they always conserve something unknown and hidden, beyond their own existence. Toth has an inner urge to go beyond the mere recording of sensations and to actually recreate these situations because through the process of making, she is drawn closer to deeper aspects of understanding. Through the consistent use of different materials and creative methods, she deals with the conscious and the unconscious aspect of her artistic processes. She uses a wide variety of different media in her visual investigations: photography, painting, sculpture and found object to name a few.
