Balázs Csizik (1987, Székesfehérvár) obtained his master’s degree in Visual Communication (Budapest University of Technology and Economics) where he’s a lecturer now, in the fields of visual communication and communication technology. He combines the visual language of photography with other fine art forms, using different skillsets. His artistic vision is inspired by modern experimental architecture and art forms like suprematism and constructivism.
His artworks are also inspired by nature, searching for the relation between urban and natural landscapes. The common feature of his series is reduction, minimalism, which appears in colors, composition and visuals at the same time. This kind of reductivity also involves some distance, resignation in relation of the urban appearance displayed. In his works he uses custom made materials, like plywood objects and textile elements with organic surfaces of natural substrates. The main visual is based on the handmade artificial world and the interplay between nature and built elements.
