Note: Pop Chassid’s introducing a new feature today. The Jewish Artist of the Week. I’m gonna try and discover a new Jewish artist every week and share him with all you wonderful people. The idea is to find Jewish artists, writers, muscians and just about everybody creative, who are pushing the envelope. Not just of the art world, but of their own souls. Just like good pop chassids. This isn’t just for big artists, but even for people just starting out or exploring their spirituality through art.
If you want to be featured as an artist, please feel free to contact me.
What better way to introduce the Pop Chassid Jewish Artist of the Week than Yitzchok Moully: the “Chassidic Pop Artist”?
Raised by hippies, Moully isn’t a typical religious Jewish artist. His work evokes the feeling of Andy Warhol, while depicting scenes such as Chassidim listening to the Lubavitcher Rebbe or juxtaposing modernity with tradition, such as his piece which shows a kiddush cup next to a martini glass.
I love Moully’s work, and I can’t wait to see more of it.
