Istvan Orosz

Professor of Graphic Art, West Hungarian University

Throughout his career, Istvan Orosz has always been drawn to tricks of perspective and optical illusions, and has incorporated many illusionistic concepts into his graphic works and illustrations. He often uses pictures with hidden meanings that elicit a perceptual 'switch' between the alternative interpretations, paradoxical or impossible structures, and undecidable figures, while following traditional printing techniques such as woodcutting and etching. He also tries to renew the technique of anamorphosis (geometrically distorted images that appears normal only when viewed from the correct angle or with the aid of curved mirrors).
