Mr. Andrew G Szava-Kovats

Andrew Szava-Kovats was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (1957) to Hungarian immigrants.
He began drawing in the 1960s, and painting in the 1970s, winning awards for his work.
In the 1990s he developed his signature style: "Quadretti," combining concepts from computer art, tile mosaic and textile arts with a painterly, textural approach to oil painting.
In the 1980s, he was also highly active in the "Underground Music Network," founding his own label in 1983.
Since then he has produced more than 70 records, appearing on labels in Belgium, Brazil, France, Germany, Portugal and the USA.
In the 1990s, he expanded his pursuits into video production, beginning with music videos to accompany his music, then moving on to documentaries in 2009.
While art was his passion, for nearly forty years, he made his living working in the fields of Civil Engineering and Surveying. He began as a Rod Man when he was seven years old and worked his way up through the ranks to Project Engineer/Manager.
He began writing in the 1970s, and worked as a reporter in the 1990s.
