Magdolna Ban (Hungarian)

Magdolna Ban, is a contemporary artist, born in Hungary. She rediscovered her artistic talent when her fascinating life bought her to Switzerland in the early 1970s. In her formative years, Magdolna Ban’s naïve painting perfectly reflected the idyllic world of her youth, in a Hungary that no longer exists. Ban moved away from naïve art to develop her own distinctive style incorporating elements of mystic reverie and surrealism to create works of poetic beauty and vibrant colour. Magdolan Ban is a member of the important Henri Rousseau Group and the holder of distinguished art prizes (Prix Suisse de Peinture Naïve). Her work is to be found in private collections and museums throughout the world.
