IZHAR PATKIN

Israel-born artist Izhar Patkin has called New York home for over 40 years. Both a painter and sculptor, Patkin repurposes historical and cultural material to make complex visual metaphors. His practice yields mixed media sculpture and painting expressing compelling, unique, and novel narrative. Many of his pieces live in permanent collections in some of the most highly lauded museums in New York, including The Guggenheim Museum, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Museum of Modern Art.

Izhar showed work in a solo exhibition, My Name Is Izhar Patkin: A Tribute To Agha Shahid Ali, in March 2015
