Voted Time Out New York’s Most Creative New Yorker in 2009, Upper East Side artist BORBAY has painted edgy portraits, famed landmarks around the world, and other eclectic images in his own unique style. His works range from modern impressionism to his distinctive collages, comprised of New York Post headlines and layer upon layer of acrylic paint.
Driven to capture the actuality of society, his collages visually display the paradox of love, lust, murder, sex, sports, betrayal, triumph, religion, rape and politics in one place… concepts any person reading a daily newspaper will see juxtaposed without a second thought.
