"...István Péter Balogh is a philosopher painter. All of his paintings contain a condensed idea of existence, which naturally waits for the spectator's explanation. His abstract paintings are expressive and they tend towards surrealism, on which the painter initiates chain of ideas by means of movement, colour and rhythm - so the spectator's experience is a sort of coproduction between himself and the composer. Figurative themes have been on his palette recently"

Dr. Pogány Gábor art historian

I just "let" myself paint. As a first step I usually have an idea of the colours I am going to use. However, at that point I do not know what the painting will depict: a protagonist or a villain. After some time something calls out from the picture and I try to seize it. If I manage to do so, a dialogue will start between me and the painting, and the moment may arrive that some spirit will possess the paint. Capturing this is a feeling I should not let go....
