Jewish Artist of the Week: Yitzchok Moully

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.

Enough words, though. Here’s his work. And if you want to see more, feel free to check out his website and a post about a recent show he did.

    Absolutely love Yitzchok’s work. Glad to see you putting him up your website… A better match of Pop Chossids are hard to find. And I daresay, Yitzchok hails from my hometown too 😉

            I’m a Product Designer so I’m on the more realistic and practical side of art and creation…

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100 certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
