Lea Avizedek

LEA AVIZEDEK Lea Avizedek was born in Jerusalem and is a descendant of an orthodox family firmly rooted in Israel during 5 generations. She received her formal art training at several institutions including the acclaimed Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem and the School of Drawing in Tel Aviv. Avi zedek's talent was recognized at an early age. The simple sketches that she drew were compared to the works of Post-Impressionist Toulouse-Lautrec, with their simplicity of few lines and bold and colorful silhouettes. The central theme of Avi Zedek's work is the female form. Her women appear in either a solitary pose of tranquility and reflection or in the social interaction of a group. Varying combinations of chalk or pencil, acrylic or watercolor are applied loosely, and are finally painted or stenciled. A combination of bold, heavy smears with light sketches then create a dense and multi-textured surface.
