Barak Rozenvain

Born into a family of artists, Barak Rozenvain was immersed in a creative environment from a very early age. Both of his parents, Michael Rozenvain and Aleksandra Savina Rozenvain, are professional artists. They met in art school, fell in love and eventually gave birth to two wonderful children, Barak and Miri. Both Barak and Miri spent countless hours in their parents studios observing their parents create stunning paintings. This experience strongly influenced Barak and provided great direction in his life. Throughout his youth he accompanied his parents to shows throughout Europe and North America, making the most of opportunities to visit museums and places of culture along the way.

Inspired by the immense natural beauty of his home in Whistler, B.C., Canada, Barak recreates his favorite mountain and ski scenes from earth elements such as clay and sand for a very dramatic effect. Barak will spend the day on the mountain and enter his studio alive with the feeling of the mountains rugged beauty. Having spent his entire childhood observing different methods of painting he was able to take his experience and translate his love for nature into three dimensional paintings that have the art world in awe. He has embraced ecological art and enjoys incorporating natural materials into his paintings in order to capture the craggy peaks and dramatic ravines that make up much of North America’s west. He has also transferred his knowledge of painting and sculpting to creating beautiful ocean scenes that depict the kinetic energy of crashing waves. The three-dimensional aspect of Barak’s work makes it instantly recognizable and immediately intriguing.

In his late twenties, Barak has already achieved more than most artists can hope to in a life time. Thanks to his immersion in the artworld in his infancy and his young age, Barak has a mighty future in front of him.
