Inspired by the immense natural beauty of his home in Whistler, B.C., Canada, Barak Rozenvain recreates his favorite mountain and ski scenes from earth elements such as clay and sand for a very textured effect. Combining sculpting and painting into one art form, Barak essentially creates a sculpture on canvas. Barak will enter his studio alive with the feeling of the mountain’s rugged beauty after a long day on the slopes. Having spent his entire childhood observing different methods of painting, he was able to take his experience and translate his love for nature into his unique three dimensional pieces.
Born into a family of artists, Barak was immersed in a creative environment from a very early age. Both of his parents, Michael Rozenvain and Aleksandra Rozenvain, are professional artists. Barak and his sister Miri spent countless hours in the family studio observing and learning from their parents. 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.
