“Sees nobody there” Adrienn Erdei belongs to a generation of artists who emerged in the 2010s exposed to the contemporary art trend as well as to the Minimalism and Pop art and to the earlier models such as Surrealism and Expressionism were—and who experimented with tremendous new modes of the pictorial execution.

In her inventive artistic environment, Erdei gained distinction by using boldly inventive forms and vivid objects and occurrences from everyday life.

As we could say Erdei reshapes the Realism of the 20. Ct, the Surrealism and Abstraction into a high-spirited painting based language of form whose subjects included domestic life, relationships and the nature of painting itself. Adrienn Erdei’s approach to her paintings is not a fashionable iconoclastic breaking with the idea that a painting or print is a twodimensional object representing a single point of view.

Her compositions are rarely dynamic but witty and emotional, her professional inspiration have been arrived from diverse sources ranging from Hungarian masters Szinyei-Merse, Karoly Ferenczy to the poetic imagery of Peter Greenaway, Michaël Borremans, to the painters of the disembodied images and embodied mind as Gábor Lajta, István Nyári, Lóránt Méhes, Gyula Konkoly, Claudia Tamás or Ábel Szabó Ábel and Attila Adorján.
