LECTURES IN MOSCOW



If you are around Moscow, come to the Central House of Artists (to the place where the International Poster Biennial - Zalataya Ptsela – used to take place), now there is a big-big book fair. Official Russian title: Ярмарка интеллектуальной литературы non/fiction 2017. Tomorrow on 1 PM I will give a lecture there. I will speak about the Hungarian book illustration – from the old illustrators (starting with the famous Hertul family) till the contemporary artists (Dora, Kinga, Jacquline, etc.) then I will show how I made an anamorphic illustration for The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe. On Sunday Serge Serov invited me to give a lecture in his Art University at 3 PM. I will speak about my works and I will show posters, etchings, illustrations, animations.  All  readers of Utisz Blog are very welcome.

"RED & BLACK & WHITE"

It’s been exactly 100 years of the Great October Socialist Revolution in Russia, and with it, several thoughts and memories arise regarding the subject and protagonists of it. The Russian poster artist Serge Serov had the idea to initiate a call for posters, from all around the world, where designers can give their opinion and feelings towards this date, bringing really interesting results, being it positive, negative, neutral, or even making fun of it. Serge asked to use only red and white and black colors. 
I copy his message: Golden Bee Global Biennale of Graphic Design and Higher Academic School of Graphic Design are honored to invite you to participate in the Invitational Poster Campaign of the Global Poster Project "1917–2017" In that context a world exhibition tour showing 100 posters is planned, which will end as a special project at the Golden Bee 13 Global Biennale of Graphic Design. We invite 90 leading designers from around the world to create posters reflecting their attitude to this date. Posters should be digitally printed. File size 91 x 128 cm, vertical, 300 dpi, JPG, PDF. Special conditions the color scheme of the poster – red & black & white.
These are my posters:

BEFORE THE MONUMENT



In 1946, a Hungarian poet stood in front of the Reformation Wall in the Parc des Bastions in Geneva. Gyula Illyés’s poem – Before the Reformation Monument in Geneva – is now regarded as one of the most important Hungarian poems of the 20th century, alongside his better known 1950 poem One Sentence on Tyranny. In his poem, Gyula Illyés (1902–1983), in his Paris youth a left-wing activist from a Roman Catholic paternal background, asks the question “Do you believe there would be a Hungarian nation if there had been no Calvin?” His answer is “I do not think so.”
