Advertisements and Movie Posters by Buzz Szilagyi

Curator’s Statement

The art of Buzz Szilagyi has the quality of rebelliousness of a graffiti artist.  Is he in fact one?  I would love to see his creative images around our city making fun of the absurdity that surrounds us.  With no rules, he blatantly juxtaposes styles, textures, images and appropriated brand names to show that art can be wild and brash, yet a pleasure to view!

Catch a buzz viewing these works and let your hair down!!

 

Artist Statement

I love advertisements, movies, random selection, and absurdity, and therefore they are the main influences of my work.  My current series is based on how simplifying an image with a brand name or a simple title can make for a completely absurd and confusing idea.  The humor and random affiliations attached to each piece come about through the process of painting.  Paint is my preferred medium because I’ve always loved the simplicity of paint on a two dimensional surface, creating a multitude of ideas for the viewer.
