A CREATOR’S LIFE
After a career as chief editor of a youth magazine until 1992, Erika Kiss dedicated herself to design foremoslty, by founding and directing a design company called Okker Muhely, where she was also chief interior designer; through this activity she found a way to develop and express her style in ways that influenced her later work.
As wife of the Hungarian ambassador to Poland, she had the occasion to show her talent as a designer and in an original way: by designing her own interior, starting from scratch. There again she was able to inject her strong artistic identity into an empty space, just like she also does on a white canvas, until shapes and colours are matching in her very own style.
Erika Kiss also stands as an inspired freelance designer, imagining objects with a strong identity and a delicate mixing of texture and materials.
As well as through design, Erika Kiss also expresses herself as a painter of various forms of inspiration and expression. Here is a selection of some of her works, showing the wide range of her influences and of her production.
