There are great moments in every artist’s life. A writer, musician, actor or painter may create something that has a great impact on our lives and he or she becomes famous. Or, it may happen that a humble artist raises himself up, step by step, and with perseverance goes forward seeking truth, creating beautiful art that becomes a real masterpiece of our time. Following the motto of the great philosopher Moses Mendelssohn: “To see the true, to love the beautiful, to desire the good, and to do the best,” it is clear that Yankel Ginzburg is truly an artist that fits this second category.

From a humble beginning as a painter dealing with mystical symbolism, he rose to become an internationally recognized artist. As a painter and sculptor of indisputable ability he focuses his talent on monumental canvas paintings, acrylic sculptures and tapestries making him one of the most dynamic and clairvoyant artists in the world today.

Few great artists have successfully mastered more than one medium to express themselves. YankelGinzburg is one of them, he glides almost effortlessly between mediums. “I’m a painter who happens to sculpt. When I discovered the powerful prismatic qualities of acrylic forms I became fascinated and excited by the endless possibilities of this medium. Acrylic produces a reflective effect, echoing colors, like no other material. The sculptures I create are powerful, yet warm and vibrant, leaving you with a lasting sense of hope and optimism.
