Imre Kocsis (* 1937 in Karcag, Hungary, † 1991 in Kalterherberg)
was a Hungarian-German graphic designer.
The Hungarian Kocsis, who emigrated to Germany in 1959, worked with graphics and drawings from the 1960s.
Already in his early work, the artist examined illusions of space that were generated less by a graphic technique and rather remained hidden behind the graphic structure.
Around 1968 Kocsis reduced its color palette and developed a simple and "concrete-constructive design language".
In primarily large-scale pictures, Kocsis dealt with central compositions, diagonals, offset forms, circular shapes, surface shifts and optical irritations.
Even in these early works, he concentrated on the “non-colors” black and white.
