Mark Fridvalszki

Mark Fridvalszki (born in 1981 in Budapest, lives and works in Berlin) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in 2011 and was a postgraduate Meisterschüler student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig (2014–2017). Fridvalszki is the co-initiator and graphic editor of the publishing project and cross-disciplinary collective Technologie und das Unheimliche (since 2014).

In Fridvalszki's most recent works he creates abstract geometries and 'immaterial' spaces that investigate the dramatic tensions between ruin-like atmospheres and a sentient materialism. An important feature of the artist's toolbar is an experimental approach towards different media: he mingles collages, wallpaper environments, found and manufactured objects, digital printing as well as other printing techniques into room filling installations. He remains strongly influenced by appropriation, subcultures, attitudes of romanticism and nostalgy as well as contemporary theories of materialism and media archeology.
