Péter Benedek was born on 29, June 1889 in Uszód. His father was a builder-carpenter. Péter probably inherited his talent from his father. (He even mentioned in his biography that his father had been a good artist.) His father and teacher supported him, he was even taken to the bishop of Kalocsa, but he wan not allowed to enter collage since he was a member of the Reformed Church. Following the advice of Jenő Masa he started to paint landscapes.

Throughout WWI, he had to report in the army several times, but he was never found suitable. Instead, he was taken to work in Budapest in the Ganz-Danubius Factory. He did a lot of drawing in his free time. This is how became acquainted with Jenő Bálint, who realized the talent of Benedek and became his patron.

This is how Benedek wrote about Jenő Bálint in his biography: 'He used me, it is true, but I can honestly say that there is a lot I can thank him for.'
