Portrait of Eleonora Ur

I first met batik when I was 10 years old, it was love at first sight.

I tell the - sometimes invisible, but present - radiance of life and the daring flamboyance of multicolored nature in my paintings again and again. The haphazard and slow meditative course of batik painting has captured my heart. My models are Amrita Sher- Gil and Frida Kahlo. Both of them were pioneers in their lives, walking on their paths independently, neglecting the boundaries of schools and expressing their feelings with colors and shapes. The untrodden way I have chosen leads me to use a two-thousand-year-old textile painting technique, which is not taught in any Hungarian art institute so it's rather unknown where I live. I teach this wonderful technique for 14 years now.

I mediate between sky and earth with my paintings, sending a message to everyone: Be open to the world and receptive to the new!

I own the only Batik Gallery in Hungary - in Szentendre in the pedestrian street, where besides paintings you can find furnishings, unique fashion solutions and imprints of my paintings!

Through cultures - I believe that one of the fundamental goals of human existence is development.

Improving ourselves and our environment – I do this by embracing and learning about different cultures. During my study trips abroad, I got to know different cultures of Europe so I could bring them to Hungary through my paintings.
