András BRAUN

In the categorization-defeating painture of András Braun the formal solutions of op-art and certain techniques of pop-art – such as advertisement-picking and the multiplication of the motives of consumer society – meet with an intense urge to decorate with an almost organic form creation-technique, and this meeting results in unsurpassable square-shaped, mostly large-size paintings. These paintings are based on the multiplication of one main motive, however the technique applied is never uniform. Braun uses wallpaper paste, acrylic paint, oil, as well as premade molds, creating stirring, wild, intensive and profane mandalas that hypnotically attract the eye. Braun passed away unexpectedly in 2015.
