  Janos Reiti– a painter, graphic artist, laureate of the regional prize of Y. Bokshai and A. Erdeli. A disciple of the famous Transcarpathian teachers of drawing – Shandor Petki and Vilmosh Berets. He had a warm and friendly relationship with the famous Transcarpathian avant-gardist and nonconformist – the late Ferenc Seman (Osci). He is an artist of colorful appearance, with a fluffy beard, white hair and grey mustache twisted in semicircle and for it he was nicknamed Franz Joseph among friends, with twinkle dancing in the narrowed eyes. As his former friend Osci Seman, Janos Reiti chose the life and work path of a free artist.

The artist`s studio, literally littered with canvases, frames, paint accessories and paper stacks, can see the multifaceted work of the artist can be seen: still lifes, landscapes, abstractions, sketches... But the master still gives preference to the graphic arts. He is an active participant of collective exhibitions, mostly foreign. He annually exhibits at the international graphic arts exposition in Subotica (Serbia).

Among the personages of his paintings the characters of ancient Greek myths and allegories of the zodiac are prevalent: centaurs, nymphs, furies, dryads, etc. The central place is given to women, which is in no way strange. After all, as the author himself states: “When I see a beautiful woman, my soul awakes and my life makes sense thanks to the beauty that should be noticed..."

 "Four summers" is the very name of the winter jubilee vernissage of the Honored Artist of Ukraine Liudmyla Korzh-Radko (born in 1956).

Personal exhibition of the famous Transcarpathian artist and teacher was opened on 2 December 2016 at “Uzhhorod” gallery and will last almost two weeks. The exhibition consists of almost 40 works that were painted over the last four years. The pictures are different in content, style, and color, but they share a lot of blossom and warm light. They are full of bright and expressive, but such light and transparent colors.

The works are excited and, at the same time, calming. The woman depicted on the canvases in the midst of feelings, is gracefully variable, with her moods and emotions, although outwardly she seems so calm...
