“G-d creates shapes, color and movement and I merely channel them onto the canvas. In a sense it is letting go. Releasing the shackles which bind me to the physical world and allowing me to walk upon a different plane, the realm of the spirit”
Ariel Fabian Lijtmaer was born in 1974 in New York City to Jewish parents from Argentina. Fabian started painting at the ripe age of eight. His first loves were drawing and eating chocolate. Fabian attended Vassar College where he where he unearthed a love for spirituality, which subsequently became the wellspring for his art.
After graduation, Fabian began a quest to discover his own spirit. He backpacked through the Andes Mountains and voyaged to the high grasslands of Tibet, exploring underwater kingdoms in Indonesia and living in Japan for two years while producing a feature documentary.
In 2010 Fabian earned a Masters Degree in Leadership & Change and he has made Los Angeles his home. He is galvanized by the Jewish spiritual renaissance occurring in LA and he longs to nurture this movement. For Fabian, painting is a form of meditation; a means to transform darkness into light, and ultimately, a way to facilitate a personal dialogue with g-d. In the process, he hopes that his art becomes a gateway that the viewer can use as a source of inspiration, strength and unbound blessings.
