Hyperrealistic Paintings Of Vanishing, Ghost-Like Bodies | Istvan Sandorfi


István Sándorfi (1948 ~ 2007) was a Hungarian hyper-realist painter. He is known for his hyper-realistic oil paintings of cloth-draped and vanishing figures. In his works, pale skin melds with the surrounding atmosphere, and bodies embrace and pull apart from one another, twisting in silent expressions of pain. Engrossed amidst states of transfiguration, Sandorfi’s “incomplete” characters exhibit both profound vulnerability and strength.

In a statement he said: “I never had the impression that I really knew how to paint, not in the past, not now. If you paint, you are simply never satisfied.” Sandorfi’s painting style blends a meticulous realistic technique with elements of surrealism. His work has been featured for the past three decades in important European galleries including Isy Brachot, Brussels.
