About Peter Horvath

Peter Horvath is an assemblage and new media artist. Exhibiting in museums and galleries globally, his work is included in numerous permanent and private collections. Embracing digital technologies at the birth of the Web, he created audio/video narrative works through selective editing of film footage and the use of his early collages. His assemblage works similarly focus on deconstructing and recontextualizing imagery through collage. Merging street ephemera, movie posters, photographs, ink, acrylic and spray paint, Horvath’s densely layered assemblage portraits reflect on his fascination with media consumption, cultural icons and urban decay.
