Sándor Szász

b. 1976 in Transylvania, Romania

Lives and works in Budapest, Hungary


Sándor Szász (b. 1976, in Transylvania, Romania) lives and works in Budapest. Sándor Szász’s paintings reflect a melancholic and almost apocalyptical stage of nature and humans, clashing in a chaotic and dark projections of the world. Vulnerability comes to terms with the selfdistructive force; ruin becomes a metaphor for survival; and the landscape is just as much an image of the subconscience as it is a reflection of the existing power struggles.
