My name is Gergő Bánkúti, I was born in Hungary in 1991 and I am a visual artist. I hold a BA in visual arts from the Eszterházy Károly University and an MFA painter degree from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Budapest. I mainly work in painting, drawing, installation and sculpture (ceramic) art, but I am open to experiment with diverse ways of creation and various techniques depending on the environment, the context and the given possibilities. I am also interested in the usage of text and its connection to visual information. Over the course of my artistic practice I have been juxtaposing personally important texts with materials from my home village or relics from the past. These materials are the base of my installations and sculptures. My approach to creation has always been influenced by remembrance, memories and ancient symbols of the past and our relationship to them. Both as a personal narrative and also as a larger social history about a disappearing life.
