Bela de Kristo was  born in Hungary on the 15th of May 1920 and died in  2006.

Bela de Kristo’s work is hugely varied: During his early period, he was greatly influenced by the Russian Constructivists, such as Malevich, as well as Picasso’s synthetic Cubist works, but there is an ever-present humour in his work, sometimes naïve in its display.

De Kristo invites the viewer to consider surface beauty along with the subjective depth.

He was a lover of colour and, harmonising shades and tones, he broke the lines and curves of objects and light into the multiple perspectives of Cubism.
