Boris Shapiro Hasidic Jewish Art Original Artwork Oil on Canvas Painting
Hasidic Playing the Flute by Boris Shapiro. Boris Shapiro was born in 1968 in Ukraine. He completed his studies in 1985 at the Luvov Fine Art School where he specialized in antique restoration. Upon his release from the army in 1987 he began working in his field, which greatly influenced the progress of his career. Following his immigration to Israel in 1991, he enrolled in the Graphic Department of the Visual Arts College in Beer Sheva. After experimenting with different media and style, Boris began developing his artistic persona based upon the 16th-17th century Small Dutch School of the likes of Pieter Bruegel. Having come from the non-humorous, non-individualistic, former Soviet Union, Boris expresses the humor, irony, and simplicity of life. His portraits are whimsical; the colors are usually earth tones, symbolizing the natural colors and events of everyday life. 55 x 55 cm. 21.65 x 21.65 in.
