LIFE IS LIKE THAT
Caricatures by Édua Szűcs
In the contemporary art, Édua Szűcs belongs to those mature graphic artists who practice their expertise based on their brief and proficiency. Her drawing skills are amazing, her aspects of creating situations are brilliant, her knowledge of humanity can sensibly react to such resonance that makes it possible for everyone to have the same personal reaction.
