Attila Kondor

Born: 1974

member since: 2019


Attila Kondor is a contemporary painter and one of the most remarkable figures of the new generation of visual artists in Hungary. He was born in 1974 in Budapest, graduated from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2000, where he studied under the guidance of Professor András Baranyai. Attila is a recipient of number of awards, including Béla Kondor-award in 2000, Scholarship of Rome in 2007.

His paintings encourage the viewer to experience a state of outside temporality and reflect on uneventful immobility. Lonely landscapes with no human presence, tilted perspective and simple architectural structures bring to the recipient the feeling of breaking out of the information flow, forcing to stop and contemplate. Since the 2013 the artist has been experimenting with fine art animation, made by oil on canvas or other traditional techniques.
