At the 5th Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland the Polish artist received the award of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts.
In the year 2016 on the initiative of the Graphics Department of the MKE (Hungarian Universtiy of Fine Arts), with the support of the university leadership and due to the approval of the Senat, we founded an MKE Award at the Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland, which assures for the awarded artist the possibility to have an individual exhibition in the Aula of the universtiy. For the first time the exposition of the awarded artist Cristian Opris took place in 2017, this year the awarded exhibition will be organized from the art works of the excellent Polish contemporary artist Marcin Bialas.
Marcin Bialas Polish graphic artist is an internationally well-known and recognized creator. He graduated the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice with honours and since then he has been teaching at this university. His works are characterized by the thorough knowledge and versatile application of the traditional graphic procedures, especially of the technique of intaglio. In course of creating his carefully elaborated graphic works he broadly makes use of the possibilities offered by the intaglio technique full of shades and strong contrasts. Another characteristic of his works is the extremely complex representation of architectural motifs. The unusually complex constructions created though with high geometrical precision and exactness are transparent and comprehensible due to the special structure analysing technique of the artist. The gloomy phalanstery of the stair constructions, labyrinths and spacial sections, monumentality and a strange world of hidden secrets of the space and distances reveal themselves in his works.
