János Duschanek was born in 1947 in Bakonyszentlászló (Western Transdanubia). He got serious professional help from the workshop led by Louis Cziráki, where he went after the Benedictine High School classes at the afternoon. Between 1968 an 1972 he studied at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Art, where Aurél Bernáth was his teacher. From 1997 to his retirement he was art teacher at the Fine and Applied Arts School, where he taught his pupils for the established professional knowledge and awareness of artistic behavior.

János Duschaneks paintings are particular, vivid part of the Hungarian art life. The country experiences brought from the small village of Bakony, which are filled with old tales, are transformed into strange vision on the canvases or on the paper. His specific imagery evokes Dali and de Chirico painting styles. On his carefully crafted compositions he takes advantage of the Netherlandish and Italian Renaissance masters picture solutions. The spirit of his pictures and colors, suggestive express the figures feelings and psyche at the compositions.
