George Baloghy’s works often include pastiches and historical references to artists such as Canaletto, a painter who also “chronicled” his city. Baloghy’s paintings feature a quiet humour and focus on all details of the landscape, from the spectacular to the mundane. As the artist himself says, ‘I find visual beauty in things like asphalt or cars.’

Baloghy’s realism is unique in that it is not photographic likeness, but as he himself describes it, an ‘enhanced realism’. The background detail is sharper than its reality and the overall effect is slightly disconcerting.
