I can also customize works based on new themes.

Here is a sample from the movie “The Shining” with Jack Nicholson.

Israeli natural haven in Ein Hod Established by Jewish artist Marcel Janco, nurtures artists

EIN HOD, Israel – The Ein Hod Artists’ Village is nestled in the foothills of northern Israel, where the Mediterranean Sea lies in the distance and stone houses that blend into nature are hidden among the trees. Established by Jewish artist Marcel Janco, known as the father of Israeli art, the studio retreat is a utopia for emerging artists. Janco himself lived and worked in the village. His spirit still reverberates in the nature surrounding Ein Hod.

Janco was born in Bucharest, the capital of Romania. He started drawing when he was about 13 and went to Switzerland to study architecture at the age of 20. He cofounded the revolutionary art movement known as Dadaism. After returning to Romania in 1922, he started working as an architect.

In the 1920s to the 1930s, he was active in Romania at the forefront of Dadaism, an art movement that challenged the existing order and rules of convention, but he moved to Israel (then Mandatory Palestine under Britain) in 1941.At the time, Nazi Germany was spreading anti-Semitism in Europe, and Janco’s work had become a target of discrimination. After the murder of a family member, Janco sought safe refuge in his roots. It is said that to ensure smooth immigration procedures, he bribed British soldiers with nude pictures.

Having moved to a new land, Janco changed his style as if to mark the dawn of a new historical era. With the artist living closer to the clear Mediterranean Sea, the colors in his paintings grew brighter. His drawings of Jewish people suffering from poverty and soldiers injured in war also became more graphic. Moving away from Europe, the center of the art world, hurt Janco’s career. Raza Zommer-Tal, the 56-year-old director of the Janco Dada Museum in Ein Hod, points out, “Janco is underrated compared to Jewish artists who continued painting in Europe.”

Under such circumstances, in 1953, five years after the establishment of Israel, Janco sensed his new “mission.” When he visited a Palestinian village that was to be demolished, the beauty of the architectural style there caught his eye. He not only came up with the idea of establishing a village for artists in order to protect the houses, but also decided to bring a new perspective to Israeli art, which was still in its infancy. It led to his focus on offering guidance to young artists and the founding of Israeli art.

“He would start his work first thing in the morning. He was always willing to give advice to young artists and was strongly aware of the role that he ought to play in Israel,” reflects Michaela Mende-Janco, the artist’s 47-year-old granddaughter. Janco, who fancied a plain and simple life, enjoyed being surrounded by nature in Ein Hod. He left a will with instructions to preserve the houses in Ein Hod.

According to Zommer-Tal, Janco’s achievements include “not only developing Israeli art and its artists, but also developing the country.” Ein Hod Artists’ Village provides a stage for budding artists to grow through friendly competition. It has also turned into a tourist destination, with the work sold at the gallery supporting artists’ livelihood.

Today, about 150 artists live in Ein Hod. Abraham Eilat, a 75-year-old artist representing Israel, is one of them. He reflects with a laugh, “I saw Janco when I was in my 20s, but he was such a major figure that I couldn’t just go and call out to him.” Janco’s influence can be seen in Eilat’s work, which takes samurai as its theme.

Manofim – the independent, vibrant art event – Exhibition galleries, museums and artists in Jerusalem

Around 10, 000 visitors are anticipated to attend the fourth annual Manofim, a grassroots initiative led by artists striving to create a strong basis for creative art in Jerusalem. The first night is devoted to the opening of the Jerusalem visual arts season with more than 250 artists involved.

Manofim was founded by artists from the Artists’ Studio in Talpiot in 2008. Two of these dynamic individuals, Lee He Shulov and Rinat Edelstein, manage Manofim today. The project aims to highlight the original contemporary art scene in Jerusalem, to portray Jerusalem as a modern, pluralistic city and to make art and culture accessible to all. “There is something about Jerusalem that gets stuck with you. I am in love with the city and want to stay here,” says Jerusalem-born Lee He. “Manofim aims to strengthen artists who choose to live and create in the city.”

The audience can look forward to twenty five new thought-provoking exhibitions. Each day will be dedicated to a different neighborhood in Jerusalem to help visitors discover new areas and link exhibition spaces with the everyday life in the neighborhood.

A new tradition inaugurated this year is the first film festival in Israel dedicated to mockumentaries, fictitious shows or films presented in documentary format. The festival, Mockumenta, will host entertaining weekly screenings of new and old films, lectures with directors and an international film competition.

“Although an annual seasonal event, the idea of Manofim is to influence the art scene all year round,” says Lee He. Manofim maintains an on-going presence in the Jerusalem cultural landscape throughout the year through smaller urban art events, an informative up-to date-website interdisciplinary activities and an art forum of over 25 cultural institutions and exhibition spaces.

Lee He and Rinat have big plans for Manofim next year and want to include a series of professional panel discussions and workshops, commissioned exhibits, an educational outreach program, a quarterly art publication and an enhanced online presence. “It’s energizing to see more and more initiatives rising up each year in Jerusalem, and to be part of this on-going creation,” says Lee He.
