Man on the Moon by András Wahorn, 2017, Hungary
András Wahorn (Hungary, Budapest 1953-) is a painter, graphic artist, sculptor, musician, composer, director, videographer, who is a constant explorer of art and the avant-garde. He has achieved worldwide success as an artist. He is one of the most recognized artists in Hungary today and has been actively exhibiting since 1969. In 1993 he was awarded the Mihály Munkacsy Prize, the highest honour among Hungarian artists, for his work.
In 1979, he and some of his colleagues founded the underground punk band A.E. Bizottsag, which later became the catalyst for his success. András Wahorn led the band until 1986, designing and producing the vinyl covers and posters.
By chance, in 2014, MoMA curator Juliet Kinchin stumbled upon the artwork. She collected and purchased the two vinyl covers and four posters for MoMA's collection, and in 2015, András Wahorn's work was added to the largest and best-known collection of modern art today.
