Portraits of Torah

Portraits of Torah is an ongoing series of paintings started in 2002. Using a grid as a guide The Artist maps out and hand paints the entire surface of his canvas to form the subjects face. Details are created using arbitrary brush strokes and specific Hebrew letters. Starting from the top right words can be read, sans spaces, to form a text that directly relates to the portrait.

Examples include: the Chofetz Chaim, which is painted using the introduction to the Sefer Chofetz Chaim, and the Lubavitcher Rebbe which is painted using the first chapter of Tanya.
