Further Information:

A rare limited edition of the portable collection of post-war and contemporary art La Lune en Rodage III. The art works were gathered by Carl Laslzo and included the greatest artists of the time who contributed with important pieces, often marking a turning point in their production and carriers: Enrico Castellani’s work for example is his first documented graphic work and Piero Manzoni's multiple Achrome is the only one produced by the artist.

Hungarian artist János Fajó follows in the geometric traditions of his teachers and mentors Lajos Kassák, Max Bill, and Victor Vasarely. He graduated with distinction from the department of decorative painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in 1961. In the 1960’s, he studies with Lajos Kassák, the father of the Avant-garde movement in Hungary, learning non-objective painting based on ‘free form’. In 1967 after Kassák’s death, he travels with his widow across Western Europe meeting Carl Laszlo in Basel, Victor Vasarely in Paris and Max Bill at the constructivist biennale in Nuremberg. Fajó began leading workshops and teaching in the 70’s and 80’s at the Pesti Műhely, the Józsefváros Gallery, and the Academy of Applied Arts in Hungary. In the last twenty years, Fajó has become one of Hungary’s leading contemporary artists. He has shown in over 50 solo and 100 group exhibitions in Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, Austria, Germany, France, and Italy. He has numerous collectors and is in museum collections through Europe.
