He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Istvan Banyai

Posted by Charley Parker at 10:31 am

Istvan Banyai
Istvan Banyai is an illustrator and animator originally from Hungary and now living in the U.S.

His extensive client list includes The New Yorker, The New York Times, Washington Post, Atlantic Monthly, Vanity Fair, Playboy, Mother Jones, Rolling Stone, Time, Fortune, Sony Records, Capitol Records Viking Books/Penguin Books, NBC, Random House and many others.

His quirky, off-kilter drawings, drawn in a cartoon-like minimalist style, poke at the edges of social trends, behavior, pop culture and art.

On his site you can find a selection of his drawings as well as a few short animations, many with accompanying drawings from their frames.

I particularly enjoy his takes on a number of well-known artists (above, bottom three), which you can find as prints in his site’s “For Sale” section.

You will find a better selection of his work, with larger images in an easier to browse arrangement, on the DebutArt site.

Banyai is also the author of several books including Zoom.

The Norman Rockwell Museum will host an exhibition of Banyai’s work: Istvan Banyai: Stranger in a Strange Land from March 9 through May 5, 2013.
