Despite his young age, the 29-year-old Batyko has received several noble awards such as Strabag and the Derkovits prize. Ever since he started portraying objects around 2006, he has depicted them out of their normal context, and describes his choice of subject as serendipity.
This is what gives the similarity to the contemporary masters of the hard edge painting that was booming in the 1960s in Hungary. Through his paintings he does not wish to give a realistic representation of the world, instead his space constructions depict an engineered, artifical surrounding.
His tranquil rooms free of objects and people are ruled by another phenomenon: despite the enormous, heavy walls, light, as one of the supreme component of his images, furnishes these modern buildings with an immaterial, maybe even spiritual atmosphere.
