” With every waking to say thank you and fill your lungs with a multitude of
tastings and scents and to marvel again and again at the beauty of nature,
and the strong springs of the world that kisses life”
This delicate, sensitive and rich poetry of artist Avi Sharon, a painter and poet, is a direct reflection
of the magical and dreamy world as Sharon seems to admit in his poem to nature that he has given
him a unique gift - a painting hand. However, in addition to this native talent, he looks at nature with
a look of inspiration, as one who knows how to thank God and the beauty that envelops the universe
in graceful poetry. Sharon's signature reflects his inner world, which he designs in pencil colors
curling skillfully in a light, flowing, clean and precise drawing. Over the years, this artist has
developed his original and unique personal style which stems from his many years of work as a
graphic designer. A special charm exists in the works of a painter who is also a graphic artist, his
picturesque world of Sharon is an imaginary world based on unrealistic connections between images
from the natural world and human images: a flower which grows from the cold and turns into a bird.
An elliptical thorn that looks at the inquisitive poor in its surroundings, a mermaid marching in an
arm combined with a man dressed as a human being, and whose head is like a turkey, trees clasped
like two women with crowns of hair. Lush vegetation becomes human, while a delicate feminine
image becomes a sensual flower in Sharon's pencil sketches perhaps the rural character of Hod-
Hasharon has developed the inspiring imagination of this artist, who has been a painter since
childhood Indeed, Sharon's work has a taste of the past, both in terms of style and in terms of the
legendary nature of the images. Legendary images inhabit the work of another artist of the
Renaissance, who was unique and different in the artistic arena of his era, Giuseppe Aarcimboldo.
This artist created human images from the ensembles of plants, fruits and vegetables, the
connections existing in Sharon's work between images are unrealistic, raising the consciousness of
surrealist artists such as Salvador Dali and René Magritte, whose artistic work focuses on impossible
connections between characters and objects. From this perspective, Sharon's work Aspiring to
express abundance and beauty, and invites an aesthetic and spiritual experience, raising questions
about the nature of the universe. From this perspective, looking at Sharon's work alongside his
delicate poems does indeed create a sense of inspiration and goodness that elevate his soul and give
him moments of magic and beauty.
