Many of the narrative elements in Balint Zsako’s paintings, drawings, and collages engage with themes of bodily functions, human relationship, sex, and death. His playful works have drawn parallels to the arcane visual language of renowned Canadian artist Marcel Dzama. Unlike the Winnipeg-born artist, however, Zsako’s works marry the visual traditions of Renaissance and Baroque paintings with the disparate concerns of contemporary art. Unified by a vascular system of flowering vines reminiscent of Botticelli, the figures in “Untitled” appear engaged in acts of gentle eroticism, their dismembered limbs evenly distributed throughout the composition by a keen consideration of complimentary line and colour relationships.

Balint Zsako
(1979)

Brooklyn-based artist Balint Zsako was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1979 and immigrated to Canada with his family in 1988. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ryerson University in Toronto, he has exhibited his sculptures and works on paper in solo exhibitions at a number of venues in Canada and internationally, including The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto; Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects, Toronto; the University of Waterloo Art Gallery, Waterloo; and The Loyola University Museum of Art, Chicago. His works have been featured on the cover of The New York Times Magazine, and included in Phaidon’s Vitamin D2 drawing anthology, as well as The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, Harper’s Bazaar, Canadian Art, Maclean’s, The Walrus, and Poetry. Zsako’s works reside in private Canadian and international collections and in the permanent collections of the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, Kansas; and the Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania. Zsako is represented by The Proposition Gallery in New York City.
