Our mission is to celebrate the rich diversity and sacred beauty of Judaic art around the world, and to establish a community for those who are inspired to fulfill the commandment of Hiddur Mitzvah by creating, collecting and exhibiting Jewish art and objects.
I am a Jewish artist and Honored Painter of Ukraine, currently living in Israel.
I was born in Kursk in 1933. During World War II I was in evacuation, where my little sister died. After the war, my father was also gone.
Since the age of 13, I have been engaged in the only thing I love, creating life on the canvas.
In 1949, I enrolled in the Yelets State College of Arts, where I studied under outstanding A. Kurnakov, V. Dudchenko and B. Giller.
Since the end of the 1950s I began to create a Jewish series of paintings, which I am still working on.
In 1960-1962, I lived and worked in the studio of N.N. Zhukov, National Artist of the USSR.
In 1964, I joined the Union of Artists of the USSR. Since 1980, I lived and worked in Kyiv, Ukraine. Member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine, Israeli Association of Plastic Artists, America-Israel Cultural Foundation, and American Guild of Judaic Art.
In 2008 I was awarded the title of Honored Artist of Ukraine.
In 2022 the war came to Ukraine again and today I continue my artistic journey in Israel, with an immense gratitude to my historical homeland and an immense pain for Ukraine.
