Arik in New York

Arik Miranda, born in 1972, is a native Israeli who lives and works in Tel-Aviv, Israel. Miranda completed his studies at Hamidrasha School of Arts in 1998, after studying at Avni Institute of Arts, Tel-Aviv, Israel, between 1995-1997. Miranda's art practice focuses on analytic irony. His work's emphasis is on adulthood and childhood memories dealing with his personal growing up verses the daily life in Israel and aesthetically it drifts between the shores of Judaica and Japanese art. In his curatorial work he assembles groups of artists according to the "syndromes" they exhibit. He was granted the America-Israel Cultural award in 1998-2000 and 2000-2002. This spring, Miranda tutored a group of young emerging artists and then curated their work in an exhibition. Currently, he is working on a personal exhibition to be exhibited in a private gallery in Tel-Aviv in 2004, following an exhibition at the Hamidrasha Art Gallery, held in December 2003. Miranda was just appointed the Art Editor of Xtra Large, a lifestyle magazine published in Tel-Aviv.

Arik Miranda was recommended to apexart's Fellowship Program by Dalia Levin, Director, Herzliya Museum of Art, Herzliya, Israel.
