Featured Artisan: Lena Kotliarker

The Griffin’s Kingdom

Lena’s art is mesmerizing. Her paintings capture something I can’t quite define which resonates within me.

Lena Kotliarker was born in 1969 in Kiev Ukraine. Her passion for painting goes back to early childhood. Lena was a pupil at the Art studio and completed her studies in the Spiritual Art Academy of Kiev Ukraine in 1993.

The Flowers and Fruits

Lena is very successful in creating very intense and vital structures, including a great variety of symbols, both figurative and abstract, using a complicated and complex correlation of techniques and colors. Her works are characterized by a rainbow of colors; from the most delicate of pastels to the brightest of expressionist colors.

Lena’s works may be found in private collections worldwide. She currently lived in Israel.

The Deep Blue Evening

“In my work I make my utmost effort to bring forward the abundant beauty and splendor that is withheld in the Judaic Art. In my method, I do this by embedding the numerous Jewish symbols and icons that have developed throughout many centuries of our rich history and heritage. The symbols mainly identify signs of fortune from the Kabbalah like good health, prosperity, fertility and so on. I believe, that when a person stares at the picture and detects the signs, the fortune will come upon him or her.” —Lena
