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

Péter Tanka

Péter Tanka

Peter TANKA got his diploma in Painting at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2010 (Master: Orsolya Drozdik). In the centre of his creative interest stands the human body. In previous years he created series to map the properties and function of guts, body parts and bodily fluids. At Friss2010 he won the exhibition prize, KOGART Bursary with his work titled Köszönöm (Thank you) I-II. This pair of works could be seen as the end of his earlier systematic research that simultaneously shows the inner and outer reality of the “perishing” human body.

In the newest series of his relatives and acquaintances the softness and subjectivity of the watercolour technique stand opposite, again, with the sharp, objective and cruel honesty of the imagery of his painting. This kind of accuracy continues on the Spring Series, with the biological precision depicted flies and insects, hereby the primary messengers of the spring are under the enlarger of a painter.
