Marton Des was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1987 and lives and works in Berlin at the moment.
He studied painting and graphics at the Obuda Secondary School of Fine Arts, at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, at the Stuttgart State Academy of Fine Arts and at the Art Faculty of the University of Porto.
Later Marton took a Master degree program in painting in The Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2015 and received a Postgraduate degree after studying as a Meisterschüler in the Stuttgart State Academy of Fine Arts in 2018.
Marton is interested in paintings, graphics, drawings, illustrations, comics and writing poems and short stories. He pays extra attention to irregularity, sensitivity, banality, humor, and failure. His goal is to mix and combine different cultural and didactic fields, from pictures of everyday life to art historical images, pop art, global signs, architecture, portraits, and codes, with an easy and airy style.
His biggest inspirations are medieval and folk art, hip-hop culture, naive and commercial art, erotic and literature. Marton tries to avoid having a particular style, he would rather prefer having an attitude or just a point of view. He mostly reacts directly, fast and playfully to incoming visual inspirations. His favorite topics are timeless and human-like, such as love, work, family, holiday, celebration and kitchen. He tries to find the poetic qualities of the actual everyday life and history. Marton mostly works on conceptual series, but the main goal is both subjective and organic.
Marton’s works were exhibited in Hungary, Austria, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, and Portugal, in the United Kingdom and in Dubai, UAE.
