Batič was born in a working-class family in Trbovlje, Slovenia, then part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. Already as a teenager, he worked in a coal mine. At the age of 19, he joined the partisan resistance which fought the Nazi German occupation. After World War II, he enrolled to the newly established Academy of Fine Arts at the University of Ljubljana, where he studied sculpture under the supervision of Boris Kalin and Frančišek Smerdu. In 1957, he received a scholarship which enabled him to study in Paris with the sculptor Ossip Zadkine.
Batič is known for his sculptures depicting events from Slovene history, as well as European and Oriental myths and legends. His best-known works include the monument to the Slovene peasant revolts at Ljubljana Castle featuring a group of men holding war scythes, and the Itaka series of figurative sculptures. His 1957 bronze sculpture Balet (Ballet) stands in front of Tivoli Castle in Tivoli Park in Ljubljana.
In 1960, Batič received the Prešeren Award, the highest prize for artistic and cultural achievements in Slovenia.
