Gábor Fülöp 
(b. 1981)

In Nyíregyháza Art Vocational School, Balogh Géza was his teacher. He graduated from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2008, majoring in sculpture, with Kő Pál and Gálhidy Péter as his mentors. In 2004, he received the Székely Bertalan Scholarship, followed by the Erasmus Scholarship in 2005. In 2006, he was awarded a scholarship from the Ludwig Foundation. Also in 2006, he won the Samu Géza Prize, and in 2007, he received the first prize in the sculpture competition of the Füvészkert.

Following his graduation, he immediately won the Derkovits Gyula Fine Arts Scholarship. In 2009, he received the KOGART Prize, and in 2012, he was granted a scholarship from the Hungarian Academy in Rome. He exhibited at the Műcsarnok for the first time in 2003 at the Plastica Dreams exhibition, and later participated in the 2015 (Here and Now) and 2020 (Free Play) fine arts salons. In 2013, he was featured in the MODEM Modern and Contemporary Art Center's exhibition "Deadly Nature" in Debrecen, and in 2019, he exhibited at the Hungarian National Gallery's "Living Collection" exhibition. He has exhibited abroad in various cities including Bologna (2011), Hong Kong (2011), Munich (2012), Shanghai (2012), Saint-Tropez (2013), Maribor (2014), and at the Hungarian Academy in Rome (2014).

His works can be found in numerous domestic and international collections. He lives and works in Budapest.

He mainly works with wood; he often paints and varnishes the surface; otherwise, he covers the surface with varied patterns, more biological than geometrical in nature. His main themes are the human figure and abstract concepts. Influences from Antony Gormley, Annemie Fontana, and Japanese lacquer techniques can be observed in his sculptures.
