Balazs Csizik is a Hungarian visual artist that created artful compositions as a homage to the Suprematism art movement and in criticism of pollution.
Balazs Csizik used rubbish that he found scattered across beaches and before to discard them in bins, he created something meaningful. He put the colored objects like plastic straws, bottle caps and jagged pieces in a way that reminds of the Russian Suprematism art movement, the main representant of the move being the painter Kasimir Malevich.
Csizik hopes that the elements of his series may help to raise awareness of the problem of pollution. “This series is based on feeling guilty about finding beauty in these colorful plastic pieces, despite that is garbage”.
“I obtained my master’s degree in Visual Communication (Budapest University of Technology and Economics) where I’m a lecturer now in the same field. Following my interests, I wrote my thesis about the contemporary abstract photography scene in Hungary.
I wanted to combine the visual language of photography with other fine art forms, using different skill sets. My artistic vision is inspired by modern experimental architecture and art forms like suprematism and constructivism.
My artworks are also inspired by nature, searching for the relation between urban and natural landscapes. My series, entitled “Waste Suprematism” is based on feeling guilty about finding beauty in colorful plastic pieces, despite they are garbage and also represent one of the biggest challenge to solve for humanity: to reduce the pollution of the Oceans. We can find the aesthetics of these elements in arranged compositions and also can think that we should raise awareness of this problem. From 2018 I’m represented by BROWNIE Contemporary Art Photography Gallery (Shanghai – China) worldwide. “
