Art Brokerage: Slava Brodinsky Russian Artist: b. 1955. Slava Brodinsky’s works are exhibited and collected throughout the world. Brodinsky was born in 1955, in eastern Russia, and emigrated to Israel in 1991. The light and color in Israel deeply influenced his style, creating brighter, earthier tones with a broader sense of light and shadow. French landscapes seeped into his painting, inspired by his travels through the Galilee region of northern Israel and Europe. Exposing the rolling hills of Tuscany, Umbria, and the south of France, Brodinsky developed his unique style brushing a mixture of sand, paint, and plaster on canvas. This incorporation of different media, such as mixing the paint with natural elements such as sand, impasto, and the use of rough brushes, served to increase the texture of his pieces and creating an air of earthiness.
