Oil on Canvas Painting of Blue Flowers in a Vase by Avi Ben Simhon

Oil on Canvas Painting of Blue Flowers in a Vase by Avi Ben Simhon

This oil on canvas is by the Israeli artist Avi Ben Simhon and dates from the 1980s. Here the artist has captured a still life of blue flowers in an orange vase and his technique gives them a stylized stained glass effect. Note: Image size is 19" height x 23" width. Avi Ben Simhon has been passionate about his art for as long as he can remember. Growing up in a poor family, at the age of six, he would find himself drawing on newspapers with charcoals, while other kids were playing in the park. One day he decided to bring home one of his masterpieces. Although he was petrified of his mother’s reaction due to the dirt of the charcoals Avi stood trembling with both arms stretched out presenting his drawing. Instead of a slap, which he expected, his mother bursted in tears at the beauty and talent of she discovered in her son. Today Avi Ben Simhon is one of the most famous Israeli artists, represented in over 100 galleries worldwide. Playful and imaginative, Avi Ben Simhon paintings seem to come from another world. The interplay of colors, the extreme textures and joyful subjects are a wonder to behold. His work is the culmination of artistic excellence. Avi has managed to create contemporary masterpieces that evoke a spirit of hope and convey a sense of warmth. The dramatic, powerful images and forceful colors are dominant in his oeuvre and express a joy of life." “The inspiration for my work comes from within me,” he explained. “I am not trying to copy nature – I am copying my imagination.”
