"István Pálfy (Putyu) is a distinctive representative of Hungarian surrealist painting.

Among Putyu's pictures, we feel as if we are in a panopticon of memories. Everyone will find a detail to savour, and be touched by the experience of déjà vu, of the world hidden deep in our consciousness, which becomes visible through his brushstrokes. And in doing so, he takes us to far more exciting realms than the perceptible reality of our eyes: painterly creativity and talent open a window on the infinite."
