An exhibition of works by László Dús and László Ottó opens on Friday, 4 February at Budapest’s Judit Virág Gallery. The show is free and features one of the largest lithographs in the world.

Known for his American abstract expressionism, László Dús, emigrated to the United States from Hungary in 1974. In a few short years, he turned from a worker in a picture-frame factory to an artist whose works now hang in reputable galleries and major public collections.

It was only decades later that he returned to Hungary, so his works are less known here than across the Atlantic. His most recent ones are giant graphics and lithographs, the creation of which, due to their size, requires serious technical skill.

From 4-25 February, you can see a selection at the Judit Virág Gallery in Ez a teremtés egy módja – Óriásgrafikák és szobrok (‘One Way of Creation – Huge Graphics & Statues’), featuring one of the world’s largest lithographs.

Running in parallel, Ottó László’s Origo-metrum; A geometria élő terében (‘Origo Meter – In the Space of Geometry’) features pieces by a prominent representative of Hungarian geometric painting.

The works by László Dús and László Ottó can not only be viewed for free but can also be purchased.
