Istvan Jobbagy is a visual artist currently residing in the United Arab Emirates, creating visual arts since 1994.
Born and raised in Budapest, his talent in visual arts was early noticed. His first exposure to fine arts were Watteau's Pierrot, Giotto's Lamentation and Bosch's Garden of earthly delights at the age of five.
Through the years, inspired by the works of Klee, Schiele, Moreau or Doré, alternative and mainstream urban culture and also motivated by his genuine interest in anthropology, philosophy and later theologian studies, he developed his unique visual language.
His work being a fusion inspired by distant eras of visual art and architecture, his notes of symbolism, expressionism and abstract surrealism meet in celestial collisions, resulting in monumentally detailed, figurative abstract graphite pencil works.
