Illusion in graphics and poster. Istvan Oros

Krasnoyarsk Museum Center "Peace Square" holds an exhibition “Illusion in graphics and posters. Istvan Oros ".

The exhibition presents the artist's posters on various topics - from reflections on the centenary of the Russian revolution to global warming, as well as graphics in which the artist uses various optical illusions and depicts impossible figures.

Since 1984, the artist has been using the pseudonym "Utisz", which means "nobody" in Greek. This name was used by the ancient Greek character Odysseus to trick the Cyclops and then deprive him of his eye. The artist's work is like an attack on the visual perception of a person, which is why he uses such an ironic pseudonym. Oros's posters continue the development of the artist's graphic language, purifying the visual image as much as possible, leaving only its very essence - the most expressive visual metaphor that does not require any additional explanations. Such work with a visual image makes his work internationally understandable in any language space.
