Born in Budapest in 1966.

Levente Balvanyos graduated the Hungarian University of Fine Art majoring in Sculpture in 1997. Between 1998 and 2000 he received the Derkovits Gyula Fine Art grant. His works are essentially characterized by the sensitive, complex and subtle use of geometric elements, as well as a curious sense of „floating” in the abstract space between symmetry and asymmetry. The almost unnoticeable shifts, as well as the web of superimposed spatial planes and intersections, are constructed from extraordinarily simple elements that are dominated by the duality of openess and closeness. His works deceive the senses in a manner that is almost imperceptible, all the while keeping a sensitive balance along the „error margins” of perception. K.D.
