My name is Borbay and I’m an artist. I’ve been painting full-time since July 2, 2009, in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. My paintings focus (largely) on portraiture and locations. My style could be summarized as contemporary contextual collage painting — a description, I suppose, which could use a summary of its own. I’m told it’s uncouth to speak about yourself, but fortunately I don’t have to worry about that, since couth weighs you down. Words that best describe me are: hard-working, diligent, passionate, gregarious, honest.
Many web tools claim to be WYSIWYG… just as lots of ladies consider themselves gorgeous and guys handsome. Well, fortunately, Wix is What You See Is What You Get… if you want an image gallery here, there you go. Another page? Click a plus, there it is. Oh, and I’m a painter, so coding page transitions falls outside of my skill set.
Wix is quick – I was able to create my entire site in two days. As a self-represented artist, time is of the essence — so whenever I can save it, it’s the cats pajamas. I was able to quickly and beautifully zero-in on a group of paintings that took me a year to paint, and create the proprietary destination they deserve.
As an artist, creating work is the hard part… selling it is the harder part. And while I realize this sounds like a promising Viagra ad, it’s true. So, getting the word out about your work in a way that will lead to an acquisition is everything. Wix allowed me to quickly and beautifully zero-in on a group of paintings that took me a year to paint, and create the proprietary destination they deserve.
Wix is helping me promote my January art exhibition: Kick Ass Actors in Kick Ass Roles. While the exact impact will not be defined until all is said and done in February, so far, it’s given this body of work a polished exclusivity, which is critical. The added value I got by using Wix was absolutely getting from point A to Z in a fraction of the time: launching a well-indexed, beautiful site without having to hire a developer is key (no dis to my talented developer and agency pals — natch).
