Hungarian Cultural Center Honors Illustrators

Illustrators Istvan Banyai, New York and Tibor Kárpáti, Szeged, Hungary will be honored in an event on Thursday, September 29 at the Hungarian Cultural Center, New York.

As Gergely Romsics, representing the Hungarian Cultural Center said, “The two artists were selected because this season we are concentrating on non-classical art forms, be that graphic art or jazz-world music crossover. The theme of this year’s event is Wealth of Difference and we will be trying to emphasize the innovative and unusual, the colorful and the funny rather than promote “old masters”—Franz Liszt and the like. Basically, we want to show original, weird, appealing, contemporary Hungarians to the New York public.”

Ambassador Karoly Dan, consul general of Hungary will be making the introductory remarks followed by Charles Hively of 3x3 Magazine who will offer his views on the contributions made by these two distinguished Hungarian illustrators.

Free to the public
