1980 Budapest, Hungary
Péter Puklus at Art+Text Budapest:
He studied photography at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest (MOME) and new media design at the École National Supérieur de Création Industrielle (ENSCI) in Paris. He is about to finish his DLA (Doctor of Liberal Arts) studies in photography at MOME.
In 2012 he published two photo-books: ‘One and a half meter‘ with Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg and ‘Handbook to the Stars‘ with Stokovec, Banská Stiavnica. In 2016 Puklus published ‘The Epic Love Story of a Warrior‘ at Self Publish, Be Happy, London. Also in 2016 he produced three solo exhibitions in Germany: ‘New Works‘ at Conrads Gallery, Düsseldorf, ‘Unsafe to Dance‘ in C/O Berlin, Berlin and ‘One and a half meter‘ in Robert Morat Gallery, Berlin.
Beside the photographic gaze which can always be found in the center of Puklus’ works, he recently started to explore undiscovered territories beyond the wooden frame. His recent projects involve sculptures, objects, installations, drawings and videos. Either in the gallery space or in a photo-book form, storytelling has a substantial role. Puklus mixes different genres and medias and makes them relate each other.
