Ha iniziato la sua attività artistica con la pittura ad olio come autodidatta. Nel 2001, attratta dalla potenzialità della grafica computerizzata e di Internet, si è avvicinata all'arte digitale, ma nonostante tali indagini e sperimenazioni con le nuove forme artistiche, continua a fare le tele ad olio e i disegni a matita e a volte le usa come fonti d'ispirazione per le collaborazioni digitali internazionali ed il suo web site contiene una raccolta di tali impianti.

Dal 2003 Collabora con diversi artisti di fama internazionale nell'ambito del processo di " Exquisite Corpse "

My favorite part of creating art is the 'stream-of-consciousness' and the discovery of each image as I am working-- I do not know exactly what would appear until I have finished it."

István Horkay (b. December 25, 1945 Budapest) is a Hungarian painter
After graduating from the School of Fine Arts in Budapest in 1964, Horkay was invited to attend the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow -Poland, the Major Art and Cultural Center of Eastern Europe, where he received his Master of Fine Arts.He continued his Studies at the Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen, Denmark. (1968) and did additional Post graduate work at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest. (1971) Horkay studied under the Internationallyknow Artist and Theater DirectorTadeusz Kantor as well as Professors M.Wejman and J.Nowosielski. Palle Nielsen/Danmark/ He received Diplomas in Graphic Arts, Painting, and Film Animation.
Horkay's art is epitomic in the double meaning of the word: a fragment, an incised part of something already in existence, and - just because of this incision - is an injury to the finished surface, to the tangle of writing or a finished picture. This relies on the experience that man, handing himself down through signs, simulates a kind of sense-wholeness. In these series this textual sense-wholeness appears to be ever different as different colors enter the surface at different sites. It is the same and not the same at the same time. "Once the signs are scars, then the wounds will tell tales of some non-alleviated history" (D. Kamper - Zur Soziologie der Imagination Hanser V. 1986. p. 148).
The sign will temporarily closen over the story. Who else would know this better than Freud, who, after the neurological-physiological and neuropsychical phases, so deeply doubted that it was possible "to bring to light the hidden content in its wholeness"
(Konstruktionen in der Analyse 1937. in: Stud. Ausgabe Ergb. Fischer V. 1982. p. 398).

design 1981 at the Fachhochschule Kaiserslautern.
In 1982 I started as a professional photographer for different Austrian
newspapers and magazines. During the 15 years to come I had the chance
to portray numerous authors, artists and poets. Besides I focused on
creating my own landscapes and objects, my darkroom became my preferred
tool to experiment with shadow and light.
In 1997 I started playing around with Photoshop and 3D programs and soon
became aware of the possibilities to create effects that could not be
achieved by means of photography and darkroom technology. Since that
time I was captured by the passion for computers and the means they are
offering if you combine various programs to find new results and new styles.

I am working on Napolecitta's project: Digital collages and flash movies ( combinations of numbers, maps, writings, paintings and masterpieces of Art history digitally assembled ) devoted to an encyclopaedical description of an imaginary city . All this seen through the prism of the Detail, whether iconic or pictorial, it produces the same effect: invite to travel inside.
