Artist Profile

 

(Canadian 1934 -    )

 

 

 

Gabor was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1934. He survived the

Second World War, the Nazi persecution and the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Gabor and his wife, Csopi, escaped from Hungary after the failed Revolution and were welcomed as refugees in England. They lived there in London with their young son Paul, moving to Toronto, Canada in 1965. There Gabor worked as a Civil Engineering Designer until he felt he could finally fulfill his life long dream of becoming a professional artist. His first one-man show was at the Pennell Gallery on Cumberland Street in Toronto 1973. Soon after, in 1977, he and Csopi, opened the successful 'Gallery Gabor', locating it in Mirvish Village, the popular arts district on Markham Street in West Central Toronto. Gabor has shown his work at Gallery Gabor and several other galleries both public and private, winning multiple awards and prizes throughout the past 25 years. He has collected and shown the work of many Canadian and International artists.
