the carpenter’s workshop, 2010, etching, sugarlift, 78 x 103 in
Shapira’s work challenges contemporaries to celebrate today’s cubist problem—the urgent need to know all you are not seeing, be simultaneously inside and outside, in history and the present. A first-generation American, Shapira is a rising artist exhibited among international museums and private collections. He lived and drew with Aboriginal Australians over three years, lectured at Harvard, The Royal College of Art, University of Sydney, and received the Daler-Rowney Prize for Drawing and Blanche E. Colman Award for Painting.
Aithan Shapira currently lives and works in Portland, OR and is represented there byFroelick Gallery.Click here to sign up for the Soul Of Miami email list.
