Interview with digital artist Bela Balog

"I live in Budapest (Hungary), a beautiful city that is cooled by the water of the blue Danube in summer. I live just a few meters from the river. My family and I walk along the shore many times. I love the atmosphere of the city, its colors, its history, its inhabitants, its hustle and bustle, its buildings. I draw a lot of inspiration for my work.

In my work, I tell stories. Stories that inspire, make me think, make me feel. It could be a street scene, an article, or a picture in a local newspaper or on the web. I just listen and try to tell the stories with my art works later."



Your digital art works are very vibrant and colourful. What do these colours represent in your art?


My artworks tell stories, and one of the most important parts of them are colours. Not only do they form an atmosphere, but together with the shapes, they also form the basis of the stories.

Where do you get your inspiration from?


From the world around me, from what happened. I live in Budapest, which is a beautiful city. There are plenty of sights, but the little stories of everyday life are the most important to me. Sometimes I see a picture or read an article in the newspaper and find inspiration. Movies, novels, poems are also often inspired me.

Where can people see your works in 2022?


Fortunately, in 2022, my artworks will be visible in many places. My works are regularly featured in virtual exhibitions at Tebbs Gallery or The Holy Art Gallery. I am also currently competing in the Doncaster Art Fair. In March, my artworks were on display at the ICON group exhibition organized by the Boomer Gallery. My artworks will be exhibited in Athens at the Athens Art Open in June, organized by the Art Number 23 Gallery. Several of my works will be published by the Art Vue Magazine in Brussels. In addition, I take part in many other competitions and online exhibitions.

What is your favourite topic for your art?


Everyday stories around me. But in my works, houses, buildings and objects created by human hands often appear. I also love to create portraits in my own abstract style.

What are your plans for the coming years?


A lot of work and creation in the first place. But I also constantly experiment, to create something new, interesting. I like to deviate a little from the usual. I consider myself a progressive creator.
