The precise template motifs and monochrome colour palette of István Dukai's work, prepared using digital techniques, draw attention to texture, material and form. His works are entirely objective, non-referential works that are linked to the creati...ve conception of American minimal art, the motifs of repetitive tine sets in electronic music and the aestheticism of brutalist architecture.READ MORE

Dukai mostly favours raw, unadorned materials in the creative process, emphasising the traditional ideals of craft and art. Composed of concentric bands and stripes, painted on raw canvas with black acrylic paint, the works are at once stark, deadpa...n, austere, imposing, velvety, diagrammatic, yet tactile and sensual.READ MORE

His works are largely hand-woven, made from recycled, not uncommonly decades-old burlap, which he dyes with natural tanning materials. His work is a fascinating dichotomy of natural and artificial, analogue and digital, traditional and technocratic.



István Dukai

1987

István Dukai (1987, Zenta, Yugoslavia) is a graphic and visual artist currently living and working in Budapest and Eger. He is a leading graphic designer and art director for several European based brands. His work can be found in several important private collections. His art is rooted in the geometric tradition, in the philosophy of constructivism, in op-art, but most of all in minimal art. The basic principle of his compositions is reductionism, based on the stylization of natural elements into geometric forms and the varied ways in which these elements are combined.
