László Zsolt Bordos (also known as Bordos.ArtWorks) is a 3d artist living in Budapest, Hungary. In year 2000 he started to show his abstract 3d animations as a VJ, performing in the underground party culture of Budapest. He studied at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest and at MediaLab UIAH (University of Art and Design) in Helsinki. With his early 3d-vjing (2001-2004), his participation to huge size architectural slide projections (2002-2005) and his outrageous video projections and 3d mapping projects (2006-present), he became a pioneer of the genre. Cooperating with other artists since 2010, he started to run the projects under the name ‘Bordos.ArtWorks and Invited Artists’, which became internationally recognized as eminent representatives of video projection mapping. Since 2014 Bordos is focusing again on solo art projects, installations and scenery projections for theaters and operas.
Nominated by Ákos Maróy:
‘Zsolt Bordos is an internationally known 3D mapping artist. One can find the early foundations of 3D mapping in László Moholy-Nagy’s works of light, and in the theoretical works of György Kepes, that later grew into an exciting, independent genre. Zsolt originally studied to become a painter, but later he abandoned painting and started to work with 3D mapping already in 2007. When this genre was first established, he was already part of the scene, contemporary to Pablo Valbuane who is considered as the founder of the genre. Zsolt, after the initial art projects, and a brief detour onto more commercial fields, with renewed vigor concentrates exclusively on purely artistic projects. Besides numerous international projects, he did the 3D mapping projection for the 40th anniversary of Vasarely Museum, as well as the closing projection of the event. This year his carrier took a turn, as he started to work for Touchdesigner along the line of 3D mapping. This year he started to organize a light festival, that will take place in 2017‘
