Emil Sogor

"Hungarin born German artist Emil Sogor studied art and design in Munich/Germany and has been active in a unique diversity of arts internationally over decades. He sees himself as a traveller between painting, graphics, design and sculpturing, using the rich potential of his multifaceted European education. As a gifted talent he completed various intense studies in arts and crafts around the world, combining his manual know-how in mutural crafts techniques with spontane series of unique works - without adherence to short-lived and "trendy" stilistic effects. Inspirations from foreign cultures, their past and their immediate present, have had a decisive influence of his work. Variety fascinates and arouses him most during his creative process. Diversity in materials and techniques is his credo …Large size paintings on Aluminium, Canvas, Perplex or solid wood, drawings on paper, graphic designs as posters, CI concepts, logo-& label designs, series of wood cuts etc, demonstrate his excellence of techniques, At the outset of his artistic activities he gives priority to the line (drawing), to space and to surfacepreferably in black and white - before colour. The result is a particular concentration upon distinctive individual forms that accentuate the graphic element effectively. The control of the entire field is my goal, at least in his early works - in contrast to his most recently abstract work. Sculpturing with local masters like Rado Kirov are part of Emil Sogor's creative work. Most recently, drawing has become an equally valued element. A new meaning of the picture. Wood engraving becomes again an important language - a return back to the technical knowledge Sogor used for special projects for many years. In his unflinching pursuit of quality down the years Sogor has erned a portfolio of loyal collectors around the globe. In his studio in South Africa he started an new inspiring phase of experimentation and creativity - - L I N E | SURFACE | COLOUR | S P A C E | L I G H T !!! Aesthetic balance of contradictory factors is most important, regardless of their technique and format. Emil Sogor is recepient of several art- and design awards in Europe and resides since 1999 in Gordon's Bay/Cape Town, South Africa.
