Statement

During college, Abram studied International Business in France but would sneak into art classes to feed his creative soul. He later went to film school in New York where he eventually taught lighting design and camera set-up.

By combining photography with painting and lighting, Abram has created works that are bold, bright, yet intense. While staying focused on his strengths in these new mediums, Abram is always searching for ways to enhance and exceed his own high creative standards. Never satisfied with the outcome, Abram has been known to work for days on end to achieve the ultimate goals of his artistic endeavors.

While many of his works are either graphic interpretations, paintings or photographic images, the new direction his artwork is taking combines these disciplines and skills, creating dramatic images on both large and small scale. Abram’s unique mélange of mediums adds to the beauty of his pieces working with materials like liquid plastic, liquid porcelain and oil paint mixture. He creates transparent prints and silk screens on glass then back-lights them.

Environmental Note: Abram goes to great lengths to ensure that his artwork complies with environmental standards. The glass is sourced from demolition yards, all of the frames are locally handcrafted using FSC certified (responsibly forested) hardwood, and a hand painted using non-toxic or low VOC paints and back-lit using LED or fluorescent lights. Currently, Abram donates half of his proceeds towards Living ECO, an Environmental Non-Profit dedicated to expanding sustainable education.
