Balint Zsako Biography

Balint Zsako was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1979, and received his BFA from Ryerson University (Toronto) in 2002. He is best known for his drawings and collages which use watercolor and ink on paper to depict a multitude of characters and experiences encompassing themes such as family, mythology, sex, bodily functions, and primitive desires. His work is recognized for the thick black outlines which encase "shocks of colour". Zsako's art has also been likened to illuminated manuscripts, as the delicate lines are combined with very simple, archetypal themes. However, it takes the viewer a moment to recognize that this traditional method of drawing with ink on paper is coupled with notions of innocence, perversity, and sometimes even cruelty. Bodies twist in unusual positions, and interactions between subjects are unusually sexual and savage. This adds an element of the surreal and the bizarre; setting his work apart from the historical and into the contemporary moment.Zsako has experienced a large amount of success in the 2000s, and has moved his practice to New York where he continues to create his sinister and quirky drawings.
