ARTIST PROFILE

Janos Brückner

  • Hungary (b. 1984 in Budapest)
  • Currently in Berlin, Germany.
  • What I call art is an experimental process: the diversity of formats, methods and truths, committed to reach some kind of bottom or peak - to investigate the human. It is emotional realism. It is professional failure.
