artist of the week

Máté Varga

3D artist / videographer

“The topic of fabricated realities, games and a Second Life is still a big inspiration when I create, combined with the urban environment around us, the growing, living cities and the fight with nature.” – Varga Máté

Freelance 3D artist, videographer. He studied Media Design at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest. He already knew in high school that he would be involved in the field of 3d design, which he indeed specializes in today. Apart from company projects and orders, he also creates digital art full of artistic concepts. Varga Máté values the latest digital technologies, explores them and uses them in his work – both in projects for companies and in his digital art works. He is a fan of games and VR technologies, which he also uses in his work.

His artistic projects mainly combine topics such as the future urban environment, science fiction and post-apo. He is particularly interested in the life of the city as a living organism that grows, dies, transforms and produces meanings. This combines with technological thought and creates a dialogue between the robotic and natural worlds. In his works, the story is told by solids – complex, fantastic buildings and robotic creatures.

amor training

by Endokrates

In the center of the phenomenal image, an angel in full armor with huge, beautiful wings stands out. Right next to him or her (although the angels according to religious beliefs had neither body nor sex) you can see a small cupid clumsily holding a bow. The scene depicts learning archery as part of cupid training. The painting refers to cupid – the god of love known from Roman mythology. In traditional art, the cupid is often depicted as a young man or a naked boy with wings at his shoulders, a bow and a quiver full of arrows. Despite the large number of paintings with cupids in the lead role in traditional art, he plays a supporting role in this painting. The first one is played by an angel, presented by the artist with great grace and nobility. Gold and yellow colors also accentuate it, giving the impression of solemnity in the depicted scene.

elven forest

by Endokrates

Elves are creatures of Germanic mythology, used in numerous books, movies, games and works in the fantasy convention. The picture shows a forest scenery – an ancient, dense forest that was once inhabited by the elves mentioned above. They hunted side by side with wild cats, traversing their natural habitat. The artwork gives the impression of a blur because the image is very dynamic. Painted with supposedly quick brush strokes, although it is a digital painting. Despite the impression of dynamism, the artist also pays attention to details – a detailed face, water splashes, flower buds. Beautifully matched colors emphasize the mood of the forest.

mermaid

by Endokrates

The wonderful oneiric scenery of the seaside with mermaids in the lead role. They look out to sea and rest. Mermaids, as mythological creatures, have a very turbulent history – they were presented as innocent beings but also as the embodiment of evil. In Greek mythology, they are dangerous and cunning femme fatale creatures, pictured as half woman, half bird. Later, as in Roman mythology, they were depicted as sea nymphs – a fish with the head of a woman or in the form of a half woman, half a fish. Although the mermaids are painted here in a very static way, the nature around them – the sea and the clouds – is agitated, changeable. However, the picture itself is very reassuring, you can look at it for hours and rest with the mermaids. Pastel colors – green, blue, red are blurred among themselves, creating the impression of a dream into which you can immerse yourself

werewolf

by Endokrates

The werewolf is a mythical creation that appears in many mythologies (including Slavic and Germanic) and legends. It is a man who transformed (voluntarily or as a result of a curse) into a wolf or a figure that was a combination of this animal and a human. This ability is called lycanthropy. This motif is widely used not only in art, but also in the entire fantasy culture, especially film and literary culture.

In this painting, the werewolf is shown with many accompanying attributes – a full moon, long claws and the ferocity typical of a transformed human. The night is highlighted by black and blue colors, and the fuzzy, quickly painted fur gives the werewolf dynamics.

run

by Endokrates

A sensational work depicting a knight fleeing from an enraged giant. This scene is remarkably similar to the one described in the Bible. It is, of course, the parable of David and Goliath, which is used very often in culture, for example in The Witcher 3, but also repeatedly presented in classical painting, for example by Titian or Caravaggio.

The dynamics of the image perfectly reflect the atmosphere of the fight, just like the colors. Yellow and brown indicate that the fight takes place in a sandy area in the summer, and the colors are just like those taken from the Hollywood movie. Also noteworthy is the warrior’s shield, which appears golden when reflecting the sun and itself takes the rank of the sun in the painting.

bath

by Endokrates

One of the artist’s classic works depicting a half-naked study of a woman in a bath. The work is very impressionistic in its expression and has something very interesting about it. The eyesight and slight smile of the posing woman, her body arrangement and lack of shame, all those little details that the artist included in the representation of her body appeal to the viewer. The colors chosen by Treschl for this painting are also not accidental – red in all cultures is associated with the notion of life forces, fire, blood, war, passion and fertility. That is why the picture has a very intimate, warm and even intimidating atmosphere.

DHC_05

by Máté Varga

Each of us knows this feeling when we are on the verge of something new (experience, separation in life), but we must take this decisive step forward. Sometimes, however, something holds us back, prevents us from making a decision. When creating this graphic, the artist wanted to symbolically capture this moment, emphasize the value of making decisions alone. That is why we see a streak of light illuminating from below the silhouette of a man floating somewhere in outer space. He is tied to a huge object straight from the cosmic science fiction he is hovering over. You can see the stars and the universe in the background. The work is in black and white colors that emphasize the atmosphere of outer space. Thanks to the minimalist and concise approach (for which the artist is known), we get a work that is clear, aesthetic and rich in content. We can go deep into ourselves and look into our microcosm.

DHC_09

by Máté Varga

The above work, made of shades of gray, is a symbolic and multidimensional work. It depicts a robot-like figure carrying an enormous multi-story object on its back. This picture evokes the mythological Atlas carrying the world on his shoulders. However, we are not dealing here with Atlas, but with a character deeply integrated with his luggage and what he carries. It is also not the world, but the building (or integrated buildings) – there are stairs, air conditioning, ladders, pipes. In a word – a block of flats or pieces of an inhabited city.

The artist says about the work: “A single block carries many houses and many lives. It is a carefully fabricated construct balancing on the timeline. ” Graphics are therefore a symbol of an apartment block or a city in which many lives inhabit, many time axes intertwined with each other. Above all, however, it shows a great burden and responsibility rests on the environment in which people develop and live.

DHC_10

by Máté Varga

The work shows a robot with shapes that resemble human beings. However, he has no skin or hair, and we cannot see his face. We can only notice that his curled figure is attached to an invisible device. The cables come out of the back and travel somewhere beyond the frame. The light illuminating it is there to let us know that the device, robot, and cables are active.

Living in the age of information and the Internet, we are all connected. We exist in many worlds simultaneously. In addition to reality, on the Internet, we are able to create new spaces, environments and communities. Although we don’t need cables to be connected, we are constantly hooked up to the meta worlds, bombarded with notifications. So, each of us, we are a small part of the Covenant that creates not only the Internet, but the very movement of data, electricity and energy.

stack_01

by Máté Varga

The artist’s great passion is to create new urban and industrial environments from elements borrowed from actual structures. Varga focuses primarily on how the elements associated with these spaces can be reused in a different way. This particular work was created thanks to the inspiration from oil rigs and the aforementioned industrial places. The artist re-combines fragments of similar structures – hangars, metal sheets, cables, satellite dishes, ladders – to create a completely new structure. Combined with a great selection of colors including pastel shades of red, blue and green, the work gives the effect of a truly beautiful industrial landscape. The colors are also close to the now popular retro synthwave culture referring to the 1980s.

streets_0725

by Máté Varga

Graphic that is a manifestation of the artist’s passion – creating new urban environments from elements borrowed from real structures. The work presents the artist’s image of a house made of many fragments of urban architecture. Despite the very well-organized structure made of matching parts, we have a certain sense of chaos. The artist explains this by the fact that he most often reproduces buildings from his dreams – but not everything he remembers. Sometimes he adds something, sometimes he subtracts it. So it creates a kind of chaos, which nevertheless makes the work natural. We do not live in a sterile world, and work, as it contains elements from the real environment, seems close to us, as if it was an architectural project, not an artistic vision. The colors resembling those of an ordinary evening are also related to this – warm, dark blue, yellow lights in the windows, the glow of the setting sun.

land_A0

by Máté Varga

The work is characterized by a minimalist and extremely aesthetic presentation of a space made of solids. The artist writes about the work: “I dreamed of a bright place made of concrete and glass connected by metal beams.” Graphics are a landscape created by the artist’s mind. The shape of the lumps in the foreground slightly resembles the stern of a ship. The choice of colors – white, dark pink and shades of gray evokes the colors of the sunset, evoking a warm, soothing feeling. So we have the impression of rocking on an imaginary ship looking at an unprecedented sunset. This successful attempt to build a specific, pleasant impression on the recipient is not accidental. In his works, Varga masterfully manipulates the surroundings and colors, knowing exactly how to combine individual elements to evoke specific emotional experiences.
