Dr. Sándor Pellet
The Hungarian born doctor and fine artist had started his painting career before he began his medical studies at the University of Debrecen, where he received his -first of many- degrees in 1969. Dr. Sándor Pellet is well respected as an expert in radiation protection, he worked for the International Atomic Energy Agency as well as other National Institutes and Universities in Hungary. He became a full time artist after retiring.
His art tutors were László Félegyházi and Lajos Bíró at the famous ‘Debreceni Képzőművészeti Kör’ - the Debrecen Fine Art Circle. Sándor had a long lasting involvement with the Circle, attending group exhibitions and workshops -or artists’ colonies- regularly. He is one of the founders of the well known artists group, the ‘Debreceni Műhely Alkotóközösség’ (the ‘Debrecen Workshop’ artist group) and has been a member of the Association of Hungarian Creative Artists (MAOE) since 1978. He had solo exhibitions in Budapest, Debrecen and Pomáz in Hungary, as well as exhibiting internationally. Sándor lives and works in Budapest, Hungary.
Born in Budapest (Hungary), now living in London. As the first child of an oncologist-gynaecologist father, she grew up to know Sándor as a family friend, who always showed a keen interest in Orsi’s artistic development. This mentoring relationship culminated in a shared show in 2009, at a gallery in Pomáz called ‘Testvérmúzsák’. Orsi’s formal education includes a diploma in professional photography, a degree in graphic arts, then a Master’s degree in silkscreen printing (MKE, Budapest, 2000). She became a member of the MAOE in 1999. She is also a member of the Society of Women Artists and was awarded for her ‘body of work’ in 2013. In 2018, her work was selected for ‘The Columbia Threadneedle Prize’ exhibition. She regularly exhibits at the Mall Galleries, London (home of the Federation of British Artists).
