“Voyeur of History" witnesses 55 years of Baykam’s relationship with art. He makes several references to old masters, Rubens, Picasso, Duchamp, Carracci and Andre Breton as he has always done several times since 1987. 

The paintings, according to Baykam, summarize and make a synthesis of all his art. Although they remind the viewer of the works done by artist in the early days of Neo-Expressionism at the start of the ‘80s, these works are much more a synthesis of the artist’s different periods, such as “The Transparent Layers’ (1998-99), “The Real-Fakes” (1987-1992), “The Harem Intrigues” (2000-2002) and “Lolitarte” (2006). Collages from endless sources melt together with layers of paint. These Works mature in much longer periods of time. This series includes many details of his own history, and the title of the series indicates his relationship with history and with his own history. All these factors make the paintings by Baykam timeless pieces.
