established in 2020, the eastern beat features stories of expat artists living, working and creating in budapest. i talk to them about their work, inspiration, plans for the future. i also ask what brought them here, what makes the city special, how it is different from other places and how they pursue their artistic careers as expats. my aim is to create a network of expat artists that allow and encourage connection within the local art scene by expanding the community and helping to tell their stories.
