About Balint Zsako
Often including wild animals and multicolored figures bound or fettered together, Balint Zsako’s erotically charged works possess a shamanistic quality. Working in mixed media, collage, painting, sculpture, drawing, and photography, Zsako has recently focused on watercolors that feature intertwined naked figures. The artist’s practice also involves soliciting audience participation. In a recent exhibition, he placed his paintings loosely on a shelf and allowed viewers to rearrange their order, inviting them to construct new narratives for his work.
