Original limited edition serigraphs by Hawaii artist, Avi Kiriaty available for purchase.
Avi Kiriaty, born in Israel in 1957, grew up in a world of art. His journey through life has taken him from the Israeli Army, to a Greek Island, to a winter cottage in New Hampshire, and finally to Hawaii. Avi has worked in many media... oil painting, lava and bronze sculpture, pencil and ink drawing, watercolors, ceramic platters, serigraphs, and linoleum block printing.
Using his hands with a carver and linoleum block, Avi creates a unique colored and textured linoleum block print. Each piece is composed of a series of overlaid printing done with the same block. The design is carved on a block and printed in stages, with a new color added for each stage. Each block is destroyed through the cutting and printing process, making each print an original and one of a limited series. His works are a feast of lush colors and bold lines, often depicting the Polynesian lifestyle of every day events.
Avi has been featured in the United Airlines “Hemisphere” magazine, “Surfers Journal” from California, “Nalu” magazine from Japan, “Stern” magazine from Europe, “Manoa Journal” from Oahu, Hawaii, and other various magazines and journals. He has also been the subject of a number of documentaries including PBS “Spectrum Hawaii”, “Beach Break Hawaii”, and NHK Japanese broadcasting.
