Borbay February 27, 2018 – Posted in: From Our Community, Reel Service, Special Projects, Vedavoo
A world-renowned artist, Time Out New York magazine named Borbay their Most Creative New Yorker. He defaced Andy Warhol’s Marilyn and Major League Baseball hung it up in their Fan Cave. His collages incorporating New York Post headlines became a New York Post headline. He is painting the Guggenheim each year for 20 years, and intends to show the series in the Guggenheim itself. His work graced the cover of Zack O’Malley Greenburg’s best-selling book, “Michael Jackson, Inc.” In 2015, he helped architect, Art Exuma, in the Bahamas, and was the first Artist-In-Residence. In 2016, he was selected by judges from Sotheby’s, Gagosian Gallery and Christie’s Collectrium to show at the Accessible Art Fair in Manhattan.
Borbay’s signature neon paintings of The Antler Inn, a Jackson Hole landmark.
Since relocating to Teton Valley, Borbay has shown in a large-scale, solo exhibition at The Art Association of Jackson Hole. In 2017, he was the Artist-In-Residence at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole. That July, Borbay won the ’Spirit of Wyoming’ contest, landing his Jackalope painting on Jackson Hole Still Works’ Highwater Vodka bottle. In 2018, he will be the Artist-in-Residence at Teton Springs.
“When I was in college, I ran track and cross country… yet, spent most of my time with the ROTC crew. There was a kinship in our respective disciplines, and we formed lifelong friendships. In May of 2007, one of our best friends paid the ultimate price in Iraq. My Grandfather, a World War II Veteran, also gave his life for our country when my Mother was only months old. It is through the heroics of each and every service member, that we afford the luxury of freedom. I never forget these sacrifices when I hug my children, kiss my wife and pick up a paint brush. Through The Reel Service Project, I contribute a work of art to humbly show my support for an amazing cause.”
