Ben Zion Art
Having the opportunity to decorate my own home, once I got married, made me realize how important aesthetic was to me.
The pictures of Gedolim, were the final touch to the work of art that was our home.
For years, I searched for something that would fit into the modern aesthetic of my home, but I could not find anything suitable. I wanted the Gedolim. In way of a modern, beautiful minimalistic artwork. My husband and I thrashed out ideas for a long time. Eventually, we decided to try out laser cutting metal. We had to make many design decisions; color, texture, contrast, minimalistic lines. I wanted it to be perfect. It took many years of development to refine the process and achieve the quality and design that we wanted. When we got there, eventually, it was all worth the effort. The portraits of the Gedolim we produced were truly stunning!
We didn’t even realize we were solving a problem we had in our home but we were actually solving a larger issue for others who, like us, looked for a modern take on the famous photos of Gedolim.
I decided to invest in my art and expand our range in order to make them accessible to all Jewish people from all backgrounds.
Sarah Begun is a contemporary Jewish artist.
Sarah discovered her natural talent for painting by accident. She always loved to create anything artsy, so she decided to try her hand at painting. She was amazed to find out that she was a natural artist, and began painting one canvas after the next!
“I just fell in love with it” she said. “I feel that painting is an expression of my soul”
Sarah is a free thinking artist who’s innovative techniques are striking and magnificent. Sarah came up with the concept of Silver Foil Art. This brought a whole new dimension to the art world. Sarah felt that she would experiment by painting on foil instead of parchment. The results were show stopping! The metallic look created by the foil made the painting look and feel surreal.
Her creativity is incredible and her artwork is awe-inspiring. Her work is a must see!
The work of British painter Chanoch Kesselman is a carefully constructed geometric style in vibrant colours producing ethereal effects. Using gouache as the main medium and applying fine brushwork, his precise, polygonal paintings use cleverly contrasting colours to harmonious effect.
Kesselman’s recent work develops the coalescence of an ancient Chinese tangramatic puzzle with the spiritual rapture of Chassidic dance to reflect the motion of the geometrical figures featured in the painting. This perceived movement is countered by disciplined gradations of line and colour. He describes his paintings as “the rigidity of construction, offset by the fluidity of movement”. Kesselman’s work, has been exhibited in the UK, Europe, Israel and the USA.

I’m a wife and mother of 3 that discovered painting in 2015. In the past years I started to explore painting more seriously. Art has become a passion and a way to be in touch with the colorful world I live in.

While growing up, nature was always part of my childhood, which my paintings are inspired by, along with my Jewish traditions and lifestyle.
The writing of this bio, the publication of this website, and the launch of Aliza Fine Art to make Aliza’s artwork available around the world is thanks entirely to the overwhelming encouragement of supportive collectors, fellow artists, and enthusiastic students. Until now, art has been a very private part of Aliza’s life. While she provides art instruction to as many as 60 students at any given time, her own artwork has historically only been shown to private audiences. It is with tremendous gratitude that Aliza has embarked on this new journey.
Aliza has always seen the world differently – Colors others do not see, Details others miss, and a sense of the Spirituality in everything that others often do not recognize. Aliza’s earliest memories include a deep love of art. She would not simply view art but rather inspect, analyze, and deconstruct every element of what she was seeing. Aliza was fascinated by the spectrum of technique that was employed by different artists. This is how her personal taste and ultimately her talent developed. As a child, Aliza’s passion for art was not encouraged. Despite this, wherever a pen or pencil could be found, a sketch was soon to follow (sometimes on her clothing if paper was not within reach).
Aliza did not formally enter the art world until the age of 39. Life had been busy until then. Aliza had pursued and received her degree in Psychology and Education from UCLA, worked as an elementary school teacher, and (most importantly) raised four wonderful children with her husband. It was not until she joined an oil painting course her daughters had enrolled in that she decided to make fine art her full-time professional focus. Once Aliza picked up that first brush with oil paint on its tip, like a wellspring, art began to flow and it has not stopped since.
Aliza finds inspiration everywhere and sees the hand of the Creator in everything. While her mind constantly races with ideas, she recognizes the time and attention that is required to make these ideas come to life in the form of fine art. Aliza often creates large format pieces so that she and others can feel as if they are “in” the painting – not just outside looking in.
Aliza sees the natural world as a bridge to the spiritual realm. She lives in awe of G-d’s creations and their incredible beauty. Aliza’s personal commitment is to capture moments of particular beauty and share them with others. Aliza’s hope is that her artwork will serve as a celebration of the natural and spiritual worlds’ ability to provide comfort, guidance, and inspiration.
