Gyuricza’s mission

My mission is to create artworks of original, emotive and edifying quality, and to promote Pop Art in Eastern-Europe. Strengthening the artwork-spectator bond – via exhibitions and online initiatives to enrich people's lives.

My vision

My core purpose is to empower the young urban white-collar citizen, to express and promote her/himself confidently, via the Pop Art genre that I aim to invigorate.
I strive to differentiate myself in the artist universe, by using Psychological concepts, Humour and Pop culture icons, providing an immediately familiar experience, even if you never saw my artworks before.
My artworks are a personal effort to comprehend the mysticism of death, and leave behind a legacy. While I expect these actions to be fundamental, I do this as a mental health effort for myself, and for the esthetical benefit of others. Because Art is about Resilience, It Always Has Been.

I also commit to improve my own social impact and behave ethically and responsibly at all times.

There has been a distortion in the distribution model of works of art. The impact of digital frameworks of a global scale will shape the future of art.
I want to drive that process.



Gergely Gyuricza

People always ask me:

“How do you find the inspiration?”

And the truth is that my grandfather always said, his tombstone will only say "Gyuricza".

I know what he meant. For a man, that is the only thing that matters. To have a name and live up to that.

 

I sign my paintings as they were my tombstones, I leave small pieces of me behind, to show I was here, to show i mattered, to be remembered... as a statement that

"I fucking tried"

 

I remember my father’s green jeep,

Where he hid a secret stash of menthol candy in the glove compartment.            

I recall thinking: “My dad has the worst taste in candy.”

But he did teach me how to tie a tie.

My first opportunity to apply this knowledge was my first date,

I’m forced to admit it, it did not go as planed and she wound up leaving me for a boy.

It was not an uplifting moment

I’m moved to believe that that was then as it is now only … a moment, and that if today is as bad as it gets, I have to understand that by tomorrow, today will have ended and the long drawn and heavy breaths of despair have at times been felt by everyone – that pain is part of the human condition and that alone makes us a legion

 

I am not perfect

Far from it

I don’t remember the way every song goes.

I can’t recall every person I’ve met, I get names mixed up all the time, I’m terrible with birthdays.

But I remember all the ways people have affected me.

How our stories became memories.

And if you were brave enough to make one with me then you’re in there somewhere.

Maybe it was a truth or dare kiss.

Or a simple act of kindness, one that reminded me to remember this moment and mark it as a memory , so we could both have it to look back on.

From this life, I’ve drawn conclusions so big, they can’t fit into the tiny comic book boxes, because I don’t wanna risk losing the detail, Just so I can make the story fit.

 

It’s not a trick.

I remember how things felt.

Which in turn makes me remember how things happened.

That all of this shit is just debris, leftover when we finally decide to smash all the things we thought We used to be.

 

And if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself

Get a better mirror

Look a little closer

Stare a little longer

Because there’s something inside you

That made you keep trying

Despite everyone who told you to quit

You fixed the cracks in your armour around your broken heart

 

We have to understand more than most that family must be the foot you put forward first you must weather the worst together.

 

Life is composed of sound and fury… whatever noise is left in me will be twice as loud when I try.

So I plug myself into the idea of going the distance and I amplify.




In a way… I’m pretty fantastic.

It’s not magic.

I remember because I make comparisons.

Not in terms of better or worse, just different.

And not all of these memories are great, but they’re mine.

The color of my mothers coffin, and the day I saw my wife for the last time, the sound of my body braking, being ran over by a truck, the constant pain I live whit since that day.

And i am truly, ridiculously grateful.

Which lends way to believe, that none of our lives are put together on an assembly line.

We’re not pre-packaged with memories or programmed with stories.

We have to make our own.

And with the endless opportunities we have daily, seldom do we take the time necessary to record, rewind and press play.

We consume silence with noise, speakers pounding out our heartbeats as we write refund receipts for the broken ear drums of people who could hear us live.

We give up our self time, precious, because its quality is limited only by your ability to live within it.

 

Put yourself into every second of every minute, and you will have a life worth remembering.

Just because we don’t have forever, doesn’t mean we have to live our lives moving towards the end, as if on a conveyor belt.

I felt nothing short of astonished when people asked me:

“How do you find the inspiration?”

The fact of the matter is,

It’s not a trick.

There is no thick curtain you need to pull away,

No little old man making it all work from behind a locked door.

There's something inside you...

There's something inside you...


You yourself probably remember before when I told you that, there will be bad days, Times when the world weighs on you for so long it leaves you looking for an easy way out. There will be moments when the drought of joy seems unending. Instances spent pretending that everything is alright when it clearly is not, check your blind spot. See that love is still there, be patient. Every nightmare has a beginning, but every bad day has an end. Ignore what others have called you. I am calling you friend…. Everyone knows pain. We are not meant to carry it forever. We were never meant to hold it so closely, so be certain in the belief that what pain belongs to now will belong soon to then…


“How do you find the inspiration?”

And what I always say is that our lives will only ever always

Continue to be

A balancing act

That has less to do with pain

And more to do with beauty.

 

 

A Pécsi Tudományegyetemen szereztem meg alap-, illetve mesterszakos bölcsész diplomámat pszichológiából, majd itt voltam a Doktori Iskola PhD-hallgatója.

Művészetről sosem tanultam hagyományos keretek között, viszont mindig is érdekelt a vizuális kultúra, amivel komolyabban csak az alapképzés alatt kezdtem el foglalkozni.

Életünk sokszor váratlan fordulatot vesz: 2009-ben hirtelen elveszítettem édesanyámat, így korrektív jelleggel nekiálltam rajzolással, festészettel foglalkozni. Teljesen autodidakta módon, youtube-os és egyéb online gyakorló feladatok segítségével tanultam meg festeni. 

 

A festészet a terápiám.

Soha nem hittem az ilyesmiben, aztán rá kellett döbbennem, hogy a festészet nagyon egyszerű alapokkal, gyakorlatilag archaikus szinten szólítja meg az embereket. Ennélfogva bármi, amit festek, annak jelentése mások számára is egyértelmű nem szorul további magyarázatra, így instant élményt garantál.

A festészet számomra kizárólag a pszichológiáról szól: nem azok a dolgok fontosak, amiket el lehet sajátítani – azaz a gyakorlat, vagy a technika. Sokkal inkább az egyén személyiségének kifejezése, beleértve azokat a traumákat, megrázkódtatásokat, örömöket, amiket átél, majd megjelenít a vásznon. Ehhez csak arra van szükség, hogy az egyénnek olyan identitása legyen, amiből egy nélkülözhetetlen darabot át tud adni másoknak.

 


Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... Here's to You! The ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things...


Mi az élet értelme?

Az önkifejezés, az alkotás maga. Gyakorlatilag semmi más nem számít. Csináld azt, amit szeretsz, mondd azt, amit gondolsz és legfőképp válassz olyan karriert, amiben hinni tudsz.

A művészetem hagyományos, ecset vászon alapú, de digitális inspirációt is szerzek a rajongókkal együttműködve. A stílusom a pop-art, melynek lényege az esszencializmus. Mindez olyan formában valósul meg, hogy a művész életérzések, eszmék, világnézeti perspektívák egész rendszerét tömöríti egyetlen gondolatba, majd ezen gondolat magvát viszi vászonra.

Ezzel szemben áll az egyszerű, már-már infantilis forma, ami gyakorlatilag egy vizuális-rágógumi. Könnyű megízlelni, ráállni, és kifejezetten ritkán okoz csalódást. Mindezek alatt azonban ott van a kép mondanivalója, az a mélyréteg, amely olyan archetipikus érzelmekből táplálkozik, ami mindenkiben megtalálható.

Hiszek abban, hogy a muvészet nem egy individuális folyamat, hanem egy közösségi élmény.

Ennek tükrében indítottam egy rajongói oldalt Just do Art néven, melyet időközben Gyuriczart-ra neveztem át, ahol próbálok párbeszédet folytatni olyan emberekkel, akik ugyanazokban a dolgokban hisznek, mint én. Ezen felül elkezdtem egy közösségi alapú festészeti projektet is, ahol az emberek által adott érdekes történeteket, kreatív ötleteket festem meg, és ezt megosztom a feliratkozóimmal.
