Ezra Bejar Art Gallerywww.ArtPal.com/ezrabejar
Born in Mexico City, Ezra Bejar is an expressionist, scientist and author residing in San Diego, California. His paintings are drawn from an alternative reality at the intersection of art, science and humanity. His art creation is guided by his own transformation after a temporary loss of vision and thirty years of research. Art distilled using traditional and modern methods. Bold, provocative, and highly original. Rich in color, lines, geometries, texture and esthetics. His artwork is well appreciated, exhibited and collected in the US, Europe, Asia and Mexico.
Ezra combines freely traditional painting methods and modern computer tools. His art talks about nature and humanity. He says: "I rely on a subjective, deeply-rooted, uncompromising, artistic vision. I keep an eye on color complementary, balance, textures, and the central idea. The visual idea is tested by observation, method development and media experimentation until I find the best approach. "
Ezra started his educational artistic roots at his father gallery in Mexico City where he learned about the masters and contemporary art. Although he spent most of his adult life doing scientific research, he used his creative art, occasionally, to illustrate his science.
He spent two years at San Diego State University College of Art and Design participating in advanced painting and multimedia studies. Ezra has a BS and MS in biology and a Ph.D. in pharmacology from University of the Pacific.
