József Attila Erdődy was born in Nagyvárad (Oradea, Romania) in 1969, and moved to Hungary in 1988. He is a painter, but his artistic activity is not related only to painting but to other technical mediums as well with a strong concentration on colours. In his view, the technical solutions of the artistic work and the way of its realisation should ideally be defined by the artistic idea. He lives and works in Budapest, Hungary. Since 2000 he has been teaching art at the Painting Department of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts.
