Timka Szőke is a Hungarian visual artist who lives and works in Budapest.

Her works are figurative, realistic, and by her own admission, pop surrealist style images. She likes to combine different art styles in her paintings, which she reimagines and creates according to her particular world.

Her art was influenced by the Renaissance, Baroque, Art Nouveau and Pop Art styles, as well as the colorful illustrations of classic vintage storybooks.
Her versatility unfold in painting, illustration, lead glass design and photography.

She is always open to new things, experimenting, she likes to acquire new knowledge that she can combine in her works.

Her works in most cases is already preformed in her mind. She always has a lot of ideas for the next image. Occasionally, a random theme is taken from a small thing, really about any little thing. When the face of a person that she first saw in her life, inspires to a special character that suddenly comes into her mind. This is how the details of the picture are in the minds of her imagination. She has always been a visual type, she can easily figure out a picture of "everything" that inspires her. In that case, she understand why they told her many times that she was "enchanted personality". After all, a spell is any idea that surfacing in the human being. This gives the freedom.

Naturalness, honesty gives back the charm of that moment. Every person is different, every moment goes away and is forgotten, that we often don't notice. For the artist these are the greatest values she can capture in the heat of the moment. Without any forced setting, the totally spontaneous scenes characterize the concept. The simple is the great. These photos provide some insight into the most human feelings. Because every day, every ordinary weekday, there are those values that we all experience. The goal is to notice them. 

The nature is art itself. Not only the universe, but the main source of inspiration. The nature is impressive, captivating, with all its elements perfect. Nature affects all artistic trends - be it fine arts, architecture, photography, film or anything else - always brings harmony. Like everyone else, it always fills her with positive energy, which is reflected in her works - her artworks and her photos.

Nature is rich in various colors, shapes and materials, in which we find so many possibilities. It is almost incomprehensible, indescribable and inexplicable, the fact that we exist in it. There is always an amazing feeling about how each element of nature is intertwined.

She attempts to give this feeling back to her pictures.

Her artworks are inspired by the antique art trends, most notably Renaissance, Expressionism, Baroque, Symbolism, Art Noveaou, Pop Art in addition the comics/mangas.

Her pictures are projections of her current state of mind.

For her, creation is a kind of therapy and a philosophy of life at the same time.

She often use bright and more pastel shades because she think it has a very positive effect on her and others.

Her themes try to evoke our childish self, which is full of dreams and desires and is ready to be a part of a new dimension.

It belongs to a dimension where there is beauty, peace, some subtly hidden humor, where every fairy tale, legend, current event is transformed into an idyllic moment in this particular world.

Whether it is Viking warrior maidens, fairy tale characters, heroic pilots, dreamy children or ordinary people and their current challenges.

Their characters carry a natural, special beauty. She loves to display the facial mimicry that she spices with natural charm in her works.
Because the grimace is special in every face, which tells playfulness, shyness and honesty about their owners, therefore she likes to use her some pictures.
Her favorite tools are oil, acrylic, grahite and felt pen which are often combined with each other in mixed techique. She works in figurative style.
