Mari Gyorgyey received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and MFA from University of Pennsylvania. She studied with master painters and printmakers in Budapest, Rome, and Lucca, Italy. She has exhibited locally and internationally and is in collections around the world.
Miss Gyorgyey has taught art in Paros, Greece, Lucca, Italy and Budapest, Hungary. In America at St. Luke’s School, Silvermine School of Art, BiCultural Day School, and Rowayton Art Center.She also conducts classes at her studio in Norwalk, Ct.
Mari’s work integrates her fine art and textile design background. The content is strongly influenced by living in communist Hungary, and suburban America. Her portraits have the passion of European Expressionism with the visual superficiality of Technicolor films. Her work seems offbeat but at a closer glance is strangely approachable and empathetic to our human condition.
Over the years Mari Gyorgyey has exhibited in group shows at the Georgia State Museum in Tbilisi, Tapio-Gyorgy Museum in Hungary, Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, Lyman Allen Museum in New London, Discovery Museum in Bridgeport and the Hungarian Museum in Passaic, New Jersey.
Mari Gyorgyey lives in Stamford, Connecticut. At this time she is preparing for a solo exhibition in her native Budapest.
