Lives and works in Budapest

Andi Galdi Vinkó started her studies at the Eötvös Lóránd University Faculty of Art History and Aesthetics and graduated at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Photography in 2011. She became recognized in the Hungarian, and at the international art field in a very short time and have gained serious international recognition in recent years. In 2014 her works was exhibited in London and New York. New Yorker noticed her art in an article connected to the New York Photoville exhibition and the series entitled Paradisco exhibited in the same year at the Deák Erika Gallery. As she seas, Paradisco is a series of sociological portraits, or rather socio-still-lifes, done in the past five years: „The melancholy of landscapes and still-lifes allow me to investigate the fragility and tenability of existence, it also allows me to ask questions about the perpetually valid symbols of vanitas, or about that roots of fear and frustration when thinking of the unstoppable probability and caducity of life.”
