Alex Levin is a Ukrainian born painter that conveys his vision of Venice with its masquerade on the canvas.
Alex was born in Kiev, Ukraine and was graduated with honors from Fine Art Academy. Later he moved to Israel where he proceeded his artistic career, and did it absolutely successfully. His works are appreciated around the world and are enlisted in many private and corporate collections in the United States of America, Israel, France, Italy, Ukraine, Switzerland and Belgium.
Despite of the young age (the artists is little bit over 30), Alex managed to develop his skills in various techniques, such as oil, acrylic, pencil, charcoal and tempera paints. The last is especially in favour due to the absence of brush strokes, as an original manner of 16th century, and in addition the painting style is ranging between Surrealism and Realism.
Most famous series of works created by the artists are the three following specific themes: “Tradition of Jewish Heritage”, “The Spring Hill” and “Venice through the mask’s eyes”. In this post I will present the painting from the last mentioned theme. In additional to the excellent painting technique, the artist creates the complex detailed composition on the canvas using the symbolic meaning of Venetian masks surrounded by the colorful background.
