Róbert Pal Köteles
He studied painting between 1993 and 1998 at the Arts University in Timișoara. In the last year of study he set up the conceptual basis of his painting technique. The artistic practice of Róbert Köteles is achieved by applying a mathematical principle — the infinite division of the square — with the aim of rendering the concept of density. This operation, which defines his entire work and is entitled Clipa ( The Moment ), is the basis of any image.
