Meet Zsolt B. Pataki of CGI Views

Today we’d like to introduce you to Zsolt B. Pataki.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Born in Romania of Hungarian descent, I came to the United states in the 80’s. Having moved to LA in 2003, where I graduated from the Art Institute, with a focus on Media Arts and Animation. Following a lifelong passion of traditional photography, I began developing a keen eye for matte painting, I was on a quest to find my own artistic voice. I spent years working on photo-realistic environments, creating textures, retouching images, painting landscapes, etc. Always placing my attention on the smallest details. It took a lot of determination and self-discipline to discover where to find my true voice. All the while, it lay in the art of allowing, amidst the distraction and the noise, Now, I finally allow the work to speak for itself.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Throughout my journey, I learned to be able to quiet my mind and focus on the work that needed to get done. I had to spend years working my way up, learning to perfect my technique. Many hours also spent working with 3d models, renderings, creating detailed textures, measurement accuracy, etc. I work alongside the art director of a manufacturing company, whom I have also spent learning a great deal from. Especially the importance of collaboration and workflow. Together, with a modeler, we create the content for Wyndham Collection products, which gets sold through online retailers. I decided to architect my own start up business, where I have a chance to apply everything that I have learned.
