Born 1967 in Marosvásárhely. Artist based in Budapest. KissPál has developed installation and performance works towards video and computer-based practice, and although using technical and electronic images and sounds, his art maintains an "intermedial" attitude towards the elements of the work, following rather an "inductive" than a "generative" tradition.
