Hyper…realism 2

I continue my theme of hyperrealism with Istvan Sandorfi (known as Etienne Sandorfi), a hungarian artist born in 1948.

He moved to Austria and Germany to flee communism with his family (especially his father who was sentenced to death as he was the IBM’s director and told to be pro-american). This violent climate has certainly influenced his work.

His paintings are like photos and portraits of anonymous men and women. There is a lot of melancholy and sometimes like a violence as the bodies have always lost something ; an amputation.

Sad or worrying : the human pain.

The beauty …

The vulnerability…

Human still life…


… essential ; steam of dream !

Life !
