The Designer - Peter Pocs
He was born on the 14th September, 1950 in Pecs, Hungary and graduated from the Fine Arts College in Pecs in 1971 obtaining a Gold and Silversmith Designer degree.
He has been working as a graphic designer from 1972 preparing mainly cultural (theatre, exhibition, festival) posters and from 1989 also political and social posters.
His spiritual masters are: Henryk Tomaszewski, Waldemar Swierzy and Gyorgy Konecsni. His only commercial customer is Tamas T. Nagy - cheese importer.
His plastic (sculpture) posters can be easily recognized from the unique way in which he shapes salt paste or clay that is later painted and photographed.
He is a regular participant of international invitational poster symposiums (Hommage a Max Ponti, International Litfass-kunst Biennale, 13 + Lautrec, Communication 2000, Hungarian Millennium).
He regularly takes part in international exhibitions, biennales and triennials with his works.
He is founding member of the artistic group D.O.P.P., established in 1987.
