previous about

Dávid Biró is an artist based in Budapest, Hungary. He graduated from Photography BA at the University of Kaposvár and Photography MA at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME).

His main interest is the influence of the technical mediums on human perception. He uses the camera as an extension of the human sight and tries to examine the concept of reality and knowledge. Biró tests human perception, especially the way we look at photographic images. His precise compositions evoke the aesthetics of the digital world in which he and his generation grew up, while he is also questioning the future of photography in a computer-driven society. He mostly works in the studio environment and seeks to unfold his conceptual ideas in a progressive form.

He was represented in several national and international exhibitions. He is part of the Futures photography platform and the finalist of the ING Unseen Talent Award in 2018. Biró won the Association of Hungarian Photographers: Photography Scholarship for 2017 and the National Scholarship of Hungary in 2015-2016. As a member of a group exhibition, he won the ON_AWARD grand prize of the OFF_Festival Bratislava Contemporary Photography Festival in 2014.

Biró is represented by Trapéz Gallery, Budapest.
