Győrffy Éva

o 1931 - Born April 13th in Arad, Romania.

The art of Eva Gyorffy is expressionistic with signs of symbolism. Her portraits have a psychological content. The Lexicon of Contemporary Hungarian Art (page 765) says about her work: “...in her portraits opens up a deeper layer...”
After the discovery of the computer, her work became more colourful, without loosing pictorial sensibility. One of her most appreciated experiences is redesigning oil paintings in the computer and giving them several different new expressions.

o 1997 - Discovery of the artistic potential of the computer. She renounces at her traditional studio and works almost exclusively by digital means.
 Programs used for computer graphics: Paint Shop Pro versions 4 - 9 and X, Photoshop 7, Macromedia Flash MX. For drawing she uses Wacom Tablet big format.
 Basically she builds up her digital paintings on three different ways:
• painting in the computer (wacom tablet)+ filters
• scanning her one oil paintings + painting + filters
• digital photography + painting + filters.
 She builds her one homepage by using Macromedia Dreamweaver MX and Front Page 2003.
