Avram Kohen-Tzedek

Born: 1949, Philadelphia

Kohen-Tzedek studied art at UC Berkeley. His neighbor, novelist Chaim Potok, said he was the inspiration for the character of his artist hero Asher Lev. In 1970 he continued his studies at Bezalel in Jerusalem and made Israel his home. He is well known as an illustrator of books and magazines, but his shtetl figures are his most personal creations. His work is a wonderful blend of tradition and modernity.
