Hillel's Description: I had found amongst my dad's stuff, photo-illustrations of wrestling holds he had used to practice from during his amateur career. I juxtaposed these with my new found interiors. That hand grabbing the guy in the green suit is as real a portrait of my late dad as is possible.

This is truly a stupendous work.

Hillel

Not a clue. My earlier comment was in jest. You may have noticed that I have slightly warped sense of humour. Actually at the time, I was just experimenting to see how this comment box works.

JP

Indeed. The artist's a true genius for sure... have you any idea what it's about?

pk

A bit of Francis Bacon ?

Aha..PK, despite appearing that you're new to AP (your presence is noteworthy as nothing ever happens here anyway!), it however does show you have an eye for quality. Although it's been remarked before on the appearance of FB (and many others) in Hillel's work, I can vouchsafe that he really is a very much a complex and unique artist in his own right. Having seen some Kagan originals (as you would expect these photos do little justice to the real deal), and having met him in an abortive attempt to bring artists together in Sicily in 2007, there is real beauty and excitement to be discovered when you have the the things there in front of you.
He also happens to be a master raconteur, some examples of which you might find in the forum (when it was used, sporadically, many years ago)
