Since 1996, Gabor Ulveczki creates a wide range of wallpapers, mural panels, eglomise glasses and objects under the ULGADOR© brand.
For his creations, he uses unique means of applications, oxidization and corrosion of metal leaf such as gold, copper, silver or aluminium.
These innovative techniques give objects amazing colours and particular effects.

It is with gilded leaf paper that his research efforts have been able to express his creative spirit in the most concrete and spectacular fashion. For gilding, he developed recipes of his own, that his workshop applies in all its productions. This original set of techniques is able to give objects unusual effects and spectacular colors.
Gabor Ulveczki was born in Hungary. As an art and theatre lover, he decided to become a painter at the age of 17. In 1983, Gabor arrived in Paris. A year later, he created his own fine arts workshop established in Bussy-Saint-Martin. From 1998, it dedicated to decorative arts. Soon after followed the ULGADOR© brand.
