Mask

Artist's Statement:The old saying in Venice says, The long nose of the mask is the Venetian Symbol.You put the mask on when you want to be different; to hide your feelings, your purposes, have your little intrigues and remain undiscovered.From the ancient times, Venetian masks were made to represent faces of mystical characters, never seen but believed to exist.The real masks were produced from leather and became a second face even giving people the ability to kiss.The Venice itself is the city in mask and through that mask that enchanted city is looking on the surrounding world.Venice through the masks eyes that is how the Artist, Alex Levin, named the series of work, where he is looking in the eyes of every one of his mask, and discovers for us the most sensitive places of the treasury of Venice.When the series of masks would be completed and brought together, we would see the gold of costumes and silver of laces and masks masks masks, and also the mirror reflection of the most breath taking performance in the world the Venice Carnival.BIO:Born in 1975, Kiev, Ukraine.At the age of six started painting and at the age of twelve entered the Art Academy, which graduated with awards.Immigrated to Israel in 1990.Since 1992 has been studying with Professor Baruch Elron (Chairman of Israel Artist Association).The majority of the paintings are displayed in private and institutional collection of Israel, Belgium, USA, Australia and Russia and have been reproduced on the covers of the books and other printing materials.Currently working on 2 themes: "Tradition of Jewish Heritage" and "Venice through the mask's eyes".An artists new vision of a Venice Carnival takes a completely unique approach and presents a viewer with a lavish and most prominent feature of Venetian carnival the Mask.Tradition of Jewish Heritage is a collection of work of Jerusalem's holy Western Wall and it's surrounding religious neighborhood. Through the strokes of his brush, Alex has captured the inhabitants of Jerusalem's ultra orthodox neighborhood of Mea Shearim, Jewish Attributes and people at the Western Wall.Major Exhibitions:1989 - KIEV, UKRAINE1990 - HERZLIYA PITUACH, ISRAEL1993 - TEL AVIV, ISRAEL (Wine festival Rishon le Zion)1994 - NEW YORK, USA (ArtExpo)1997 - SIDNEY, AUSTRALIA (Avory Gallery)1998 - TEL AVIV, ISRAEL (Bitan Haomanim)1998 - AMSTERDAM, HOLLAND (ArtExpo)1999 - PARIS, FRANCE (Gal. le Parvis Saint Merri)1999 - HERZLIYA, ISRAEL (Vizo)2000 - LAS VEGAS, USA (ArtExpo)2000 - BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (Gallery Aigu)2001 - NY, USA (ArtExpo)2001 - BERN, SWITZERLAND (Galerie Marlyse Aebli)2001 - HAIFA, ISRAEL (Eshkol Pais)2002 - NY, USA (ArtExpo)2002 - VENICE, ITALY (Art Gallery Bugno (Venice thru the mask's eyes))2002 - TEL AVIV, ISRAEL (Offir Gallery)2003 - NY, USA (ArtExpo)2003 - SIDNEY, AUSTRALIA (Hamilton Art Gallery)2004 - NY, USA (ArtExpo)2004 - NY, USA (Alexander Gallery (Ancient Tradition of Jewish Heritage))2005 - NY, USA (Alexander Gallery (Jerusalem Revelations))2006 - NEW YORK, USA (Downtown by Philippe Starck, 23 Wall Street))2007 - LOS ANGELES, USA (Beverly Hills, (Jerusalem Revelations))2007 - JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Knesset, (Jerusalem Revelations)) 2008 - NEW YORK, USA (Kostushko Foundation)
