Koásznai

FullSizeRender-10I ventured into Somerset House’s exhibition Koásznai: A Cold War Artist: Animation, Painting, Freedom without an in-depth knowledge of the world of animation. I immediately became mesmerized by viewing the drawings and sketches hanging on the wall. Adjacent to these works was a television showing the drawings coming to life. Koászani was a Hungarian artist who painted scenes from Paris, Prague and his home, Budapest, during the post Cold War era. His pop art technique utilized bright hues and stylized figures in a manner that transforms paper sketches to television animation.
