About Avner Levinson

Avner Levinson (b. 1981 in Jerusalem, Israel) is a sculptor and painter.

Between 2005- 2013 Avner lived, studied and created his art in New York City. He earned an MFA degree from The New York Studio School.
Avner shows in New York and Israel, he teaches and lectures in various institutes.

In his work Avner deals mainly with the human form. Human issues, such as the delicate balance between the physical and the spiritual, are the main themes in his work. He works in a variety of materials: clay, papier- mache, bronze and plaster.

Avner’s working process is very open: he begins with a vague notion of what he wants to create. The sculpture is a continuous sketch that in a sudden moment comes to completion.

Avner’s works do not necessarily represent clear human figures, often they are abstractions or essences of forms: hints of human figures, animals, and landscapes.

Creating art has always been a vehicle for his self-expression. Sculpting is a creative, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual pursuit for him.
