This week we are featuring the talented artist Nathan Brutsky!

Nathan Brutsky – Born – 1963 – is an Israeli artist, living and creating in Tel-Aviv.
Nathan was only 10 years old when his father, a man interested and knowledgeable in art,
looked at some pictures his son had made in school and decided that Nathan was talented
enough to study art. The son preferred soccer to painting, of course, but his decisive father
prevailed, and soon the son was spending 2 and 3 hours, daily, drawing and painting.
He painted everything he saw, without distinction, and from that day on he was rarely seen
without pencil and paper. This rich experience turned out to be very vital when, years later,
Nathan began to create complex compositions, with multiple elements. This contributes a great
deal to explaining Nathan’s rare professionalism.
During all these years Nathan studied under outstanding artists. The knowledge he acquired
from them, to this day, is immeasurable. In every aspect of every painting there are two things
that are important to Nathan: The first is the power of expression, style and quality, and the
second is that his art needs to make people happy.
For several years his main occupation was interior design of synagogues and private residences.
Later, painting became the main part of his life and, as he admits today, architectural designing
no longer interested him. He created amazing stained glass, lamps, and murals. Nathan
understood that only art brings him real joy and pleasure, and that only in art he can implement
his creative designs, on the canvas, in a quiet study.
Since 2002 and till nowadays, a significant role in this journey plays the cooperation with
Michael Rozenvain – talented art-manager and great artist. This creative relationship inspires
Nathan to deepen and enrich his art.
His creativity comes to life every day, when Nathan stands by his easel once again, to express,
through his art, his way of looking at the world. In every new painting he brings a new
combination of color, harmony, and overflowing yet quiet energy, as well as intense textures that
are also exquisitely balanced and refined. The dancers, the flowers, and his loving couples are
always filled with an internal and noble light.
In every creation, in every brush stroke, one discovers the originality of the creator’s style, the
unique technique, and the amazing harmony of the expression and joys of life.
