Ready to Hang
Painted in October 2009. I had planned on going out that day to paint on the street, but it was a very cold day, so I stayed in and painted the view out the window of my studio by my easel. If you have ever lived in New York City, or other cities this is a very familiar view for you.
Born in New York City, Mezrahi's paintings are inspired by all aspects of life. During the day he works as a New York City Public School Teacher, on weekends, holidays, and summers he works as an artist. He has several different subjects he often paints, American Life, New York, his personal life, love, the Holocaust, Israel, and Ritual Jewish Life. His paintings tell intimate personal narrative stories about these subjects. Some paintings can be colorful and happy and other can be dark and intense, but his paintings always tell the truth.
