Balázs Antal aka. BAANTAL is an artist and designer in Budapest. He keeps his focus on nature, sometimes humor, or sexuality. Balázs interested in ceramics, aquarelle and porcelain painting and likes to use a wide color palette, contrasting colors that he often combines. His hand-painted ceramic pieces give the impression of a floral field with all its symbolism and naturalness or even have many abstract impressions like most of the aquarelle paintings. Much of the forms what he creates are clear and have a regular geometry.
Balázs was a porcelain painter of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory, so his strong brush work combines traditional and instinctive movements. He constantly reflects on his inner thoughts, incorporating them into various forms and materials.
