Under the influence of Eastern-European pro-democratic movement he drew some political posters as well. His individual graphic works of art are often related to postmodernism by archaic forms, art historical references, stylistic quotations and plentiful self-reflection. Themes of the natural sciences, especially of geometry and optics appear in most of his works. He is also concerned with the theories of vision and sight such as the way the beholder's hypothetical expectations influence the visual and empirical perception of spatial structure. He tries to experiment with the extremes, paradoxes of the representation of the perspective to create the illusion of space. Also he does experiments to renew the techniques of anamorphosis when he distorts the pictures in such a way that it can only be seen from a particular aspect or in such a way that its new layer of meaning only reveals by the interposition of reflective surfaces. Orosz is a regular participant in international art exhibitions, poster biennials, symposiums and film festivals.
