LOS ANGELES----Asaf Amario, an Israeli native living in Los Angeles, is showcasing for the first time the complete series of Mizmor L'Asaf paintings in Malibu in a solo private viewing event on June 4, 2017, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. "I grew up in Israel, and I find myself searching for those indescribable feelings I remember experiencing as a child; these paintings are my tool to capture them," Asaf Amario said. The series includes eighteen paintings, representing the Hebrew word Chai — meaning life. Placed in an unknown time and space, the images are depicted in black, white and gold. Incorporating realistic images with abstract elements highlights the rich yet modest feeling of enlightenment. [More]
