Suzie Balazs graduated from Goldsmiths College and has been a practising, professional artist for over twenty years. Her work is made up of two distinct but overlapping categories. First, drawing and painting; including portraits, landscapes and still life. These utilise a variety of media including, oils, pastels and paper pulp. The second, is mosaics.
Both categories have been highly acclaimed for their originality and rich use of texture and colour. Suzie Balazs has exhibited in numerous museums and galleries including the Royal Academy and the Royal College of Art. Additionally, Suzie has combined her art work with teaching, lecturing and leading workshops at various institutes including Morley, Goldsmiths and the London College of Printing.
As well as creating her own purely, independent work, she undertakes community, private and corporate commissions in both painting and mosaics. These can be found in a variety of settings ranging from bars and restaurants to hospitals, schools and housing asssociations, all over Britain.
Suzie lives and has a studio in London. However, her origins are Hungarian and this Central European background has had a profound influence on her work. She retains a deep artistic interest in folk-lore themes, which have been much informed and inspired by travel in Eastern Europe and Asia. Her body of work focuses on and celebrates tribal and peasant culture especially in regard to children and women.
