About Cata Espina

Cata Espina
Batik artist in Chile

Three qualities of Batik that conquered me:

​Batik is an unpredictable art. The effects that result from the sum of many colour baths and the application of the layers of wax never stop amazing me. The richness of textures and crackles are a surprise when the finished work is unwaxed.
In batik there are no mistakes, since there is always the possibility of making what could be a mistake part of the design.
The smell of wax in my studio.


Since I discovered the world of natural dyes, I decided to join and contribute a small grain of sand by generating a more sustainable art. Although combining both techniques has been a real challenge in terms of complexity, every day I am surprised and I love it more and more.

About Ur Eleonóra Batik Gallery

The Ur Eleonóra Batik Gallery was opened in 2013 in Szentendre’s pedestrian street, Dumtsa Jenő street.

This is the only batik gallery in Hungary.

This ancient textile dyeing process of Indonesian origin is on the verge of extinction, so my mission is to promote and maintain this technique through teaching and exhibitions.

This is the bridge between Europe and Asia.

The gallery also features original paintings as well as home and fashion accessories.

High quality prints and artistic giclée prints are also available in various sizes in the exhibition hall. We hold regular events where we see the people interested.
