Born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1975, Alex Levin was always destined for an artistic career.
He now resides in Israel and is one of the nation's foremost
Jewish artists, admired by international figures such as Madonna, Oscar
Peterson and Ezer Weizman. He paints using both surrealistic and realistic styles
and is adept at using a variety of materials such as oil, acrylic, pencil and charcoal.
As well as this, he is skilled at tempura and oil, a 16th century technique that
uses no brushstrokes and which Alex is trying to preserve. His studies are never
complete, however, and he is still developing his art, wishing to expand into other
Alex specializes in Judaic art,
inspired from his years spent living and painting in Israel. Taking images of city
landscapes, home scenes and everyday objects, he places them lovingly onto the canvas
where they will be stored forever throughout time in a work of fine art. Through
this, he hopes to pass on the traditions of the Jewish people as they have done
for generations before. Alex Levin's final goal is to compile a collection of images
that preserve the identity and culture of his people, ensuring that they will remain
strong for centuries to come.
As well as this, Alex Levin has also created a collection of artwork based on one
of the most well-known Venetian traditions: the mask. Offering a very unique look
at the city of Venice, these paintings provide you with an almost jovial sense of
fun as you gaze upon this wondrous city through the eyes of a Venetian mask. Because
of these paintings, Alex Levin gained a scholarship to study at the Venice Academy
of Art where he was able to develop his skills and knowledge even further and go
on to produce additional works of art for a world crying out for more of his creations.
