Szilvashi has pioneered pure, non-objective abstraction since the 1980s, acting in defiance of the widespread and authorities' imposed rules of obligatory figurative artistic approaches. His artworks are distinguished by vibrant colours and hues that derive from an avant-garde tradition that was ruined by the totalitarian regime.
