Exhibit: “The way I see it”
February 15 – April 1, 2013
Yom Tov and Elinor Bracha Blumenthal
With vivid color and brilliant skill, Yom Tov Blumenthal penetrates imagination. His large acrylic paintings are both illustrative and surreal.
Yom Tov is on the “autism spectrum” and lives, paints, and owns an art gallery in Israel. He is also the author and illustrator of the delightful book ‘Blumentoons.’ He says, “Yom Tov is Hebrew for “good day.” So after 35 years of a somewhat out of control psychological nightmare, I find out my name is “Good Day”. How ironic… I have a great deal of healing to do, but I finally feel that I am on a solid path to becoming the person I have always dreamed of becoming through my art and painting in my own gallery in ZFAT, ISRAEL. Through my work, I hope I can help others who have a different and unique way of seeing the world as I do.”
