Címoldaldalukon a Birodalom bukása c. képem szerepel, meg lehoztak egy interjút is velem." 

...és akkor olvassunk is bele Balog Béla művészi pedigréjébe. Szép kezdet. 


Bela Balog was born in 1970 (Senta). He lives and works in Budapest, Hungary. He considers himself primarily as a digital artist of deconstructivism and futurism. He mixes a lot of architectural elements into his digital works. These create a sense of chaotic structure, increasing the dynamism of the work. What also draws the audience to decipher these images are the recognizable figures are silhouettes. In the future, he wants to follow this imagined path and create more new series in the same style.

There is a strong visual language throughout the whole artworks that allows these pieces to be read as a timeline. Within each individual work there are multiple scenes layered into each other and showcase a passage of time that is expanded upon as we look throughout the entire series. Each piece feels like we are looking around an environment that is active and lively. When looked at together, we begin to see a more complete experience of life from the views inside and outside an environment. Interestingly a lot of the architectural elements are very reminiscent of work of deconstructivism and futurism.

All his artworks are a process of a story, a plot. Stories that surround his narrower or wider environment. Sometimes it's a simple newspaper article or a photo inspired, but there are times when it's a literary work, a movie, or the streets around his residence, the riverside, or the people. Bela Balog's work mixes reality and imagination. Telling his pictures and also experiencing reality. Reality can also be displayed in the imagination. Its detailed image processing is in line with these considerations. It helps the viewer understand the tale, but also leaves an open door for everyone to experience their own imagination and reality. The goal of Bela Balog is clearly to grasp the point. His topics are therefore often about the most problematic things like death, loss, illness, domestic violence. But it displays the most beautiful things in life as well as birth, love, joy, beauty.

The common language of all these images is the color world of Bela Balog, which deliberately draws the attention of the viewers loudly.

Bela Balog has developed a completely unique digital technique that uses both photographic and drawing elements. His works are being created in a unique self-developed digitization process. He is constantly developing this technique and experimenting with new techniques.
