LuppArt Mission Statement
Ever since the establishment of the LuppArt Foundation in 2015 we have been striving to provide inspiration to those invested in art and artmaking. This is why we have chosen to set up our Residency Programme in the unique and picturesque landscape of Luppa Island, a small piece of land on the river Danube just a few kilometres outside Budapest. The natural landscape of the island boasting beautiful vistas of abundant greenery and tranquil stretches of water is speckled by a handful of small houses reminiscent of Bauhaus architecture. Luppa Island thus presents the ideal environment for artistic creation, contributing to our ultimate aim of being a source of inspiration.

Luppa Island is a small piece of land on the river Danube, a few hundred meters north of Budapest’s administrative border between the town of Budakalász and the island of Szentendre. The eight-hundred-meter-long and, at the widest part, approximately two-hundred-meter wide, spindle-shaped island has been transformed and shaped by the deposits of the river.
