Subject and Association Description

Katalin Orbán was born ca.1950, and brought as an infant to Hungary, where she was then adopted. In 1974, she graduated from the Hungarian Academy of Applied Arts, where she studied under masters Árpád Csekovszky, Zoltán Rákosy, and György Jánossy. From this point on, the artist’s career is littered with numerous national and international awards.

The works of Orbán are visual poems skirting across cubism, dada, and pop. This is perhaps appropriate as the artist herself seems an effective literary poet as well.

Nearly all of Orbán’s works are modest in scale, and are compositions set within in geometrical borders. Within these borders compositions of broken shards, graphic lines and other design elements, and figurative imagery, are built. With this, the artist achieves a great variety within narrow parameters.
