A Hungarian born British artist, Orsi trained as a photographer in 1993, she studied at the University of Fine Arts, Budapest and received a Master’s degree in Graphic arts in 2000.  She spent 10 years travelling around Europe, living in Romania, Greece and Switzerland, spending time in Egypt, before moving to London.


Orsi is member of the Society of Women Artists and was awarded for her body of work in 2013 by the SWA. She regularly exhibits at the Mall Galleries, London (home of the Federation of British Artists: the most recent show that has her work displayed is the ‘Columbia Threadneedle Prize 2018’).


Orsi’s work is inspired by the visual legacy of the Avantgarde: works heavily laden with symbolism, irony and drama. During her university years she turned from pure monochrome towards the use of colours in her works, and later choosing oil and acrylic paint as her preferred medium.  Orsi’s paintings with dream-like figuralism and shifted dimensions create a special, dreamlike quality; directing the attention to different interpretations of the mundane.  Her works are increasingly leaning towards abstraction and her subject is often drawn from present time events, led by a deep desire to speak up and also to escape.


Orsi’s work can be found in public collections in Hungary, and private collections all around the world.
