Combining past, present, and futuristic elements into his carefully stylized drawings Alex Ziv will surprise you with the meticulousness of his practice. Artist Ziv is perfecting the art of giving form to signs in the most regal manner, signs that originate from myth and folk tales. Calligraphy, the roots of which translate to mean beautiful writing, suits Alex's work as it succeeds in telling the viewer a story. Standing out among the works are his introspective self portraits and carefully crafted pseudo-manuscripts inspired by gothic calligraphy.
The Peanut Gallery extends a warm welcome to you and yours for this opening.
