Sándor Pinczehelyi is one of the greatest Hungarian painters from the second half of the 20th century. Márta Kovalovsky characterized his work in three words: flexible, free and playful. It speaks about a whiff of visual invention, underlined with discipline, rooted in graphic art, and with a shadow of hidden irony. His public performance is closely connected with his native Pécs. For a long time, he worked as a director and a curator in the municipal gallery (Pécsi Galéria).
