AXA aka Polonyi Andras is a Techno producer and DJ from Budapest, Hungary. His music is mostly atonal, raw and brutalistic, with a noisy sound. His working method is based on experimentation and accidental accidents with samples which are then roughly processed to become virtual instruments. He first turned to music at the age of 4, later studying classical and jazz piano for years until he finally found the apocalyptic techno that has become his religion. After graduating from IMPRO's music production training, he started working on his first EP, called BOLESTAN. Axa's main musical inspirations are on a pretty wide range. Apart from techno, Serbian punk, grunge, hardcore, noise and drone music as well as Chopin are crucial influences in his music. He is currently working on a new EP called ASHEZ TO TRASHES, a raw, brutal techno-punk flesh specifically for the dance floor.

I studied fine arts (as a drawing teacher).
I am comfortable in several media. I joined the Global Illumination team in 2019, where I work primarily as a 2D/3D graphic motion designer.
During my university years, I worked as a VJ, which not only immersed me in the world of moving images, but also brought me closer to the underground electronic music culture and in recent years I've been writing and DJing tracks myself.
Attila Márk Kőrös first got acquainted with digital arts through the medium of photography, then through graphics and data visualization he reached 3D and real-time generative design.He graduated in 2021 with a bachelor's degree in Media Design, during his university years he experimented with projection mapping and light art, and in his thesis he explored the possibilities of human interaction and audio reactivity in digital design. The BOLESTAN AV Show, a project developed in collaboration with András Polonyi, will be the first to be launched at Cinema Mystica.
NA'AVI — artist on a voyage through dimensions of design, light and motion; visionary and generative; in spaces and on screens. Navigator of INFIMENSIONS studio, a cluster of vision artists, archisigners & lightworkers on a soul-purpose quest to bridge dimensions and assist with planetary harmonics. From different forms of new media and interactive art, he’s mostly recognized for light installations and generative visuals.
When creating he navigates to both the ancient and the future timelines. Some of his works are more geometrically precise based on sacred grids and ratios; where some other works are more unpredictably generative, entity-like. He believes in the beyond-five-senses multidimensionality of each work and is seeking to activate the transformative potential of art.

Her journey in the CGI world began in 2013 in the 3D printing industry.
To create something unreal and fictional from pure imagination to make it believable and realistic. To mimic the characteristics of nature but to add the uniqueness and twist of 3D programs. This path took her into the CGI animation world, where her specialisation became to create simulations, models, lighting, texturing based on realistic things but push them beyond every limit. Her inspiration stayed very close to natural forms, and phenomena but she often shapeshifts them into different styles.
First, I would like to describe my journey through the training and qualifications I got over the years. I have started learning 3D Studio Max around I was 10 years old followed by going into a graphic design school at age 14. My passion led me towards photography and I successfully finished my university BSC degree from that. Getting closer to what I do nowadays I learned and graduated from media design as my master's degree. Meanwhile, I self-trained myself in different disciplines such as programming and electronics, and working as a graphics designer and programmer on animations and installations most of the time. I gain my influences from different genres like photography, new media art, experimental art both contemporary and classical. I am also influenced a lot by science and technology as math and physics. I believe it has an imprint on my works. All in all, I can describe my workflow and style as I always work in multiple different disciplines and genres, I can’t imagine it otherwise,
Thank you for being with us at the 2022 exhibition!
We are already working hard on the next chapter, see you in 2023!
