Baykam gets more and more involved in juxtaposing different textures together in his "Stripe Painting" Series. Bigger in size (180x300 cm or 180x450 cm) these huge works reassemble the artist's different experiences with different mediums, giving a hint of different scenes put on top of each other among which some parts have been taken away to show what's underneath. The subject matters are self-referential as well as historical. The works become more and more "conscious", leaning towards conceptualism but still remaining within the borders of the canvas. His "Inner Landscapes" series of approximately 15 works, repeat the same landscapes painted in various ways and references. The period culminates with "This Has Been Done Before", a graffiti on white plain canvas which soon became the artist's logo and later reappeared in silk-screen version in many other works. For Baykam this painting in a way sums up the whole post-modern era, where artists, gave a continuous fight to stay original after everything had "been done before" It also takes this famous line of the critics away from their artillery by stating it before they do!
