Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides



Ábel SZABÓ obtained his diploma in 1998 from the Graphic Faculty of the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts Budapest. In 1999 he received the Derkovits-Prize, in 2006 the Strabag Artaward International and in 2011 the Esterházy-Prize sponsored by UNIQUA. The essential component in Szabó's work is the urban space and it's ironic, lyrical or dramatic representation. In his painting he found such an expression of this theme in which vacuity and neutrality leads to almost surreal effects. The industrial objects, the suburban environment, the seemingly deserted buildings, even if they are empty, they are about the relationship of the human being and his urban environment, and that most of us live here, out of necessity or acceptance.
