After spending 15 years in the world of graffiti, Istvan Dukai started his solo career as a graphic artist. He gained his knowledge in fine arts and graphic arts mostly by self-taught. As a freelancer he works on logo, abstract graphics, and nonfigurative pattern designs.
His very own style has its roots mostly in geometric tradition, the philosophy of constructivism, and op-art. The minimalist way he uses colors and forms, the repetitive rhythm – which he skips occasionally but wittingly – result unusual and illusion-like forms in the plane.
The fundamental principle of his compositions is reduction, which is based on natural elements being stylized to geometric shapes and the diverse ways of combining these elements. Sensuality also plays a key role in his pictures. He has opened towards interdisciplinary fields: his work is often used on different materials hence he became one of the top graphic designer and art director for several European-based brands.
