Visitors of the Ybl Buda Creative House can enjoy the works of Eszter Csurka, Mihály Munkácsy Prize awarded Hungarian artist. Eszter Csurka can indeed be referred to as an all-genre artist. In the 1990s she studied graphics and photography at the Hungarian University of Applied Arts, then, at the University of Theatre and Film Arts she attended the director-cinematographer class, which was followed by a degree in visual communication design.

Her diverse studies are reflected in her workmanship as well. She is known of her oil-on-canvas paintings, her bronze statues made with a special technique under the water, her jewellery representing a unique design, as well as her video works and performances. She loves mixing various techniques; the forms and themes used by her paintings are characterized by surreal motifs, sensuality and film-like visuality.

The figures in her paintings are rarely static; the plethora of movement, captured and passing-by moments appear in a specific world of forms and colours. These moves provide her paintings with their drifting power and drive.

Her underwater created statues represent an interesting mixture of science and art, where the complex process of creation becomes the creator, whereas the artist turns into a moderator.

The exciting spaces of the Ybl Buda Creative House, i.e. the building housing the exhibition, represent an excellent location for the artistic plethora of Eszter Csurka.
