Yoni Zilber – “Tibetan Art Inspired Brush Work” Jan 9 – Mar 12
Yoni Zilber is a world renowned painter and tatoo artist who specializes in Tibetan techniques and images. Born in Israel, Zilber became a tattoo artist in Tel Aviv in 1997 and currently works at Adorned, New York’s premier tatoo establishment. Zilber says of his work: “I have developed a deep admiration for Tibetan art. Its sensitive line expression, rich compositions, and simplicity lend themselves beautifully to the body… In each piece I paint, whether it is a traditional Tibetan image or an original composition translated through the Tibetan style, I strive for beauty, flow and simplicity.” He is currently studying with Tibetan art master Pema Rinzin whose work adorns walls in the Dalai Lama’s temple in India as well as the Rubin Museum.
