Peter Puklus is an artist living and working in Budapest, Hungary.

Beside the photographic gaze which can always be found in the center of Puklus’ works, he recently started to explore undiscovered territories beyond the wooden frame. His recent projects involve sculptures, objects, installations, drawings and videos. In 2012 he published two photo-books: ‘One and a half meter‘ with Kehrer Verlag and ‘Handbook to the Stars‘ with Stokovec. At the moment he is working on his third book ‘The Epic Love Story of a Warrior‘ to be published in 2016. Puklus is represented by Trapéz in Budapest, by Robert Morat Gallery in Hamburg and Berlin and by Conrads Gallery in Düsseldorf.”
