Laszlo feLugossy

Born: 1947

member since: 2019


Laszlo feLugossy ("phenomenon Lugossy") is a Hungarian painter, filmmaker, musician, performance- and video artist, a bright representative of the Eastern European underground avant-garde. He was born in 1947 in Kecskemét, Hungary. Initially he studied photography and then turned to fine art, combining it with film, literature and music. He is one of the founders of the Vajda Lajos studio in Szentendre, a circle of visual artists interested in experimental practices. 

Laszlo’s art is an infinitely simple, yet infinitely complex world. He always strives for direct expression, seeking for the shortest route. His works seem to come from the most complicated state of birth, from the undisciplined, elusive, indescribable pulsation to the simplest, most practical form for human perception. He creates a new type of art in both perception, quality and presentation. Laszlo has been exhibited regularly since the early seventies.
