Eszter Szitai is a young cinematographer and artist born in Transylvania in 1998 to a Hungarian family. She displayed a keen interest in arts at an early age, influenced by her father’s career as a graphic designer and by The Powerpuff Girls. Yes, Eszter was sitting in front of the TV and drawing the same figures thousands and thousands of times in different positions. This repetitive creative process may be regarded as a primitive manifestation of animation also. After finishing art school, Eszter ventured into the captivating world of cinematography. Her studies in Barcelona, Klausenburg and Milano revealed the potential for a seamless fusion of her passion – film and art – through animation. Domestic and international recognitions prove, with numerous participation and festival awards earned, that it is worth investing time and energy in our passion. Art Philosophy: Through her art, Eszter seeks to present the fragility of the moment by bringing her artworks to life with the help of the Artivive application. She deposits that our past profoundly shapes our present, even when those past experiences remain concealed. Our future is linked to our prior actions.
