Péri, László Budapest, 1889 - 1967, London
Came first to notice in 1917 as a student of the theatre school, and actor in the MA circle. According to his autobiography he began taking an interest in the fine arts in 1918. He was in the Czech Republic during the Hungarian Soviet Republic, and went on from there to Vienna, Paris and finally Berlin. This is where he made his constructivist works between 1920 and 1924. He got in touch with the Sturm: his drawings were reproduced in the journal, and he had exhibitions together with László Moholy- Nagy in the Sturm Gallery in 1922 and 1923, while his portfolio of lino-cuts were pulished by Herwarth Walden in 1924. He conducted experiments with the sculptural potential of concrete and the silhouette effect. He became the draughtsman of the Berlin Municipal Authorities of Architecture in 1924, giving up his work in the fine arts. He worked again as a sculptor from 1928, recreating his constructivist reliefs. He settled in England in 1933.
