His work has received positive criticism in the international arena, particularly in the U.S., Canada, Argentina, China, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Australia, Spain and Egypt.

Two of his paintings have been printed as the cover of the books "A Woman Surgeon in Igdir" by Yildiz Yalcinlar and "1939 New York World Fair and Turks" by Prof. Dr. Nejat Akar. Moreover, one of his paintings has printed as the cover of the encyclopedia entitled ‘'How We Can Maintain Our Psychological Health'' which is printed for the 50th Anniversary of the METU's establishment.

 

Two paintings of Baykara's have been taken for Bilkent University Hamiye Colakoglu Museum by Hamiye Colakoglu and his five paintings were taken to Corum Museum. Two paintings of the artist printed in World Wide Art Books - International Contemporary Masters 2010 catalogue.

A. AYDIN BAYKARA of Ankara, Turkey has a fresh use of watercolor using a subject quite related to water, i.e. fish.

His artwork "Fishes" is very appealing in terms of the signature technical approach.

Another work gains merit especially in terms of the concept of survival of the fittest in his piece "Escape from Jaw"

 

Baykara, has a signature style with watercolor creating special effects, as seen in his landscapes. In particular is "Abstract Landscape 6" with its rid color and textures.

 

He has a rich sense manipulating oil in an organic sensibility. His work "White Horse" is nicely worked wish a strong sense of spontaneity. His intriguing and highly textured "Old Houses" shows a master at work.
