Robert Czibi is a Roma artist who migrated from Hungary to London in 2010 and contributed to the capital’s art scene since his arrival. He started painting in the early 90’s while studying and working at the Open Studio Art Foundation of Varosliget in Budapest. In 2004, following Hungary’s EU accession, he travelled to Greece and Cyprus and worked in Athens and Crete. He returned to Central Europe for his first solo exhibition in the Goethe Institute in Budapest. In the following years he participated in various art projects and workshops also he was influenced by a Roma art group, where he started to focus on issues of ethnicity, identity and values of Roma culture.
Alongside watercolour, chalk and acrylic, his current interests include image transfer and collage techniques. His works have been exhibited at the UCL Festival of Culture in London, at New York University, as well as at Kai Dikhas Gallery in Berlin.
