Meet Guy Levy, a young and promising Israeli artist who invented a new painting style - Mediterranean painting

This year, Guy won the Ministry of Culture and Sports' "The Promising Young Artist" award and is only 33 years old

Definitely an artist to pay attention to his important work and his shouts in color

Guy strives to create the connections between Western painting and Eastern culture
His works emerge from the point of view of a contemporary dialogue with the history of art and with the great masters such as Picasso, Gauguin, Matisse and the German Expressionists. Guy maintains a love-hate relationship with the history of art, the main motifs in his works are drawn from Arab culture as opposed to his sources of inspiration engaged in Western culture.

Guy uses representations of music, architecture, literature and more as a means of reflecting Eastern society and culture. The feeling of the cultural carnival contributes to creating an atmosphere of 'revelry' on the one hand, but the feeling of Armageddon on the other hand is due to the use of black humor in some of his works. The grotesque motifs in his works correspond with the current of German expressionism. Guy is connected to this current as it had a degree of freedom, release and legitimacy for a picturesque, expressive and intense style.

'' My first point of action in painting begins with absolute clarity, that of a flamethrower. It has a lot of control and enjoyment in it, pretty quickly the sharpness of things blurs and from there a transformation takes place from a mental action to an animal action. As a breathing animal I use all the intuitiveness and expressiveness that resides in me and then I can be unfiltered, impolite, not lecturing.
An exemplary Mizrahi. ''
