His motives are public personalities of history and modern times, sometimes architectures, that are iconic to modernity. He translates images from different media, which have been incorporated into the collective memory of the present, into grid points or lines. Despite or because of these reductions, the artist succeeds in transferring the magic of the depicted objects onto the canvas. In addition to the technique, the selection of the image is decisive for the effect of his works. The artist himself describes finding the moment to be represented as the most labor-consuming phase in the visual process.
Most of his works are exclusively in black and white. In some cases, Schaab accentuates selected parts of the image through the restrained use of color. From a distance, his pictures seem almost like photographs, the more surprising is the effect from close up.
Janos Schaab's images are presented in national and international collections.
