Incze Mozes (Barot, Romania 1975 - )


Mózes Incze was born in Baraolt, Transylvania. At the age of ten he was already determined to become an artist. Between 1990 and 1994 he studied mural painting at the Art Lyceum in Tirgu Mures. In 2000 he graduated as a painter from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, where he studied under Gábor Nagy's guidence. In 1997 he founded the popular Élesd Workshop in Transylvania with his friends.

In 1996 he was the recipient of the Pannoncolor, and in 1997 the Bertalan Székely award. In 2009 he was given the Mecenatura award by HM-MMKI, and he was also awarded by the Autumn Salon in Hódmezővásárhely. In 2010 he won the main prize of HM-MMKI Mecenatura, and received the Koller Award in 2011.

Mózes Incze paints using traditional oil on canvas technique. He feels that this technique, in its colors and manageability, gives him the flexibility that helps his audience to internalize his depicted themes. As a painter, he focuses on questions of human existence. Figural symbolism is dominant in his works.

His absolute precision of body and character representation, his familiarity with the anatomy of flora, fauna, and landscape, his spatial representation and his depicted plasticity of materials make Incze's works extraordinarily characteristic and unique. His symbolism is particularly closed, leading the viewer into a world of suspicions, where the exceptionally refined expression of human situations, contacts, and relationships give the spectator a sense of timelessness.

The depiction of digital tools in the seemingly biblical space serves as criticism of societal consumerism.
