Biography

My drawings have been appearing in the media (first in literary-public affairs weekly Élet és Irodalom) since 1975. I have been creating book illustrations and covers, children’s tale drawings and posters since 1981. I was graphic artist and illustrations editor of cultural magazine Új Tükör between 1982 and 1990; and for a year each, starting from 1990, of political daily Pesti Hírlap and news magazine Európa.

In the last two decades my drawing were regularly published in the daily newspaper Népszabadság (Weekend supplement), German-language Pester Lloyd, literary and cultural periodical Korunk (published in Cluj-Napoca, Romania), literary, art and critical periodical Alföld, theatre magazine Premier, economic weekly Figyelő, Courrier International (Paris), and history magazine Múlt-Kor.

In the 1980s, monthly art periodical Művészet has published my writings on noted foreign satirical artists (Steinberg, Folon, Ungerer).

I was exhibition director of the I. International Caricature Festival, hosted in the Hungarian National Gallery under the sponsorship of US First Lady Barbara Bush in 1990; and director and—along with Krisztina Wiengard, Réber’s daughter—curator of graphic artist, illustrator and caricaturist László Réber’s retrospective exhibition at Vigadó Galéria in 2003.

I will be one hundred on the 10Th of December, 2046…
