Attila Adorján’s exhibition ‘After VOGUE’ in the Kempinski Promenade Gallery

Budapest, 8 March 2023 – The exhibition 'After VOGUE' by Attila Adorján has opened in the ground-floor gallery of Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest and awaits visitors until the middle of May.

In recent years, Attila Adorján has exhibited mainly in Western Europe, so the domestic public has rarely been able to see his works. The current exhibition is also significant because, after 12 years, he is presenting his latest works in Hungary again, organised by Ar2day Gallery and Kempinski Hotel Corvinus.

Attila Adorján was born in 1968 in Balassagyarmat. After he attended the painting school of László Gyémánt, he graduated from the University of Fine Arts. His pictures can be found not only in Austrian, Swiss and German galleries and private collections, but also in the Hungarian National Gallery and in Kempinski Hotel Corvinus' Art Collection.

At first glance, his painting revives the tradition of hyper- or photo-realism. The representatives of this genre aim at an objective, impersonal, cool presentation of reality. Attila Adorján's return to painting traditions, which is primarily manifested in his creative attitude and use of materials, is, however, more multifaceted and cannot be narrowed down to the aforementioned trend.

Attila Adorján's art moves on the boundary between reality and imagination. The exhibition 'After VOGUE', which has just opened, focuses on the reinterpretation of pop-art and photorealistic representation, which Attila Adorján imbues with his own style and visual world, creating a reality that is exclusively his. His subjects come from our environment, photos, magazines and advertisements, and he usually depicts women in his pictures. The works provide visitors with a well-communicated, aesthetic visual experience.


Ar2day Gallery is the partner of Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest in the Promenade Gallery.
