“Funnily, I used to say that instead of Cubism, I represent the Cuteism movement.”

Szabolcs Bozó’s fluid approach to painting and drawing encapsulates the freedom of youth with refreshing honesty. The energetic creatures morph between human, animal and friendly monster, often with multiple heads and limbs. The self-taught artist has a profoundly intuitive understanding of colour. Despite using single-colour blocks, each one is brimming with variations in texture and tonality. When painting on canvas, Bozó works on the floor, meaning footprints and accidental smudges are left on the surface. These ‘imperfections’ are integral to his practice. Full of mischief and glee, Bozó’s charming creatures proclaim the possibilities of an instinctive, almost automatic artistic technique.
