Next to Each Other

Zsofia Otvos

Participatory Budgeting Murals

1785 W. Greenleaf Ave. (North Wall)

“Next to Each Other” is composed of three structural layers. The street front windows are inspired by businesses in the neighborhood, the reflection in the windows are architectural elements from around the world based on the suggestions of passerbyers as the artist was painting. An art scholarship brought Zsofia to the United States from Hungary in 1994. She received her formal studio training at Studio ’91 lead by Rita Kopek in Budapest. The unique treatment of color in her work evolved at the loom, by joining her mother in weaving traditional Gobelin tapestries from an early age on. She directed her focus to painting in 1999, her works have been exhibited in the United States, Hungary and Italy.
