FINE ARTS: Tivaud
Starting Wednesday, February 5 - 7:00pm
Born in 1952 in Kiev, Ukraine, Jerzy Yuri Zawistowski (Tivaud) spent his youth studying ballet. Within the halls of the Opera House in Kiev, he often spent time admiring stage installations and learning from a painter-sculptor between rehearsals. A love of visual arts was born from this experience and the seed of his craft began to grow. He went on to perfect his craft through the study of restoration at the Restoration Studio of the Hermitage Museum in St-Petersburg, Russia, and in 1979 enrolled at the Technical College of Industrial Art in his hometown of Kiev. Following an exploration into journalism and photography, he moved to Israel in 1989 where he worked as a Landscaper in Jerusalem and produced his first solo exhibition of paintings and sculptures in Tel Aviv in 1991.
"I aim to materialize the beauty of movement, through the expression of bodies moving through space, thus creating a universe that is my own; a synthesis of crafts and a new perspective on classical dance." - Tivaud
