Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1961, Csilla Orban went through life with a love of art and eventually took on a Degree in Art at the University of Budapest, this turned into a Masters Degree which she graduated with in 1984 and she continued to extend her academic life for another full year living as a scholarship student in the USSR before spending her twenties travelling around Europe. She eventually settled in the United Kingdom.
It was during these travels that she became heavily inspired by the great cities she had visited, most prominently London and Paris. Her works depict these urban areas in distinctive detail and have won critical acclaim worldwide with a series of international exhibitions as well as winning the 'Genius Talent Prize' in Budapest as it celebrated Hungary's entrance into the EU. During six months in the US, Orban also participated in a joint exhibition in Texas which only won her further popularity.
