About Art Chazin
Who are we?
Art Chazin was founded in Jerusalem in 2000 by the artist and designer Rabbi Avraham Chazin, born into a family of artists and painters.
Today Art Chazin is the leading company in the field of painting and creating original Jewish art on parchment. Included in this artwork is the Haggadah for Passover, written and drawn on parchment, the Megillat Esther, Jewish oil paintings and more. The company has gained a reputation among the world’s greatest Judaica collectors, pieces of "Art Chazin" have been shown at exhibitions around the world, and were purchased by highly discerning collectors for their beauty, originality and utmost attention to detail.
The monumental 'Illuminated Torah' is undoubtedly the most impressive project produced by Art Chazin which glorifies the homes of Judaica collectors, prime ministers and Jewish Senators. ‘The Illuminated Torah’ is displayed in museums in the States and in the White House. In Israel you can admire the piece of art at the Western Wall in the Yeshiva of ‘Aish Hatorah’. All the artwork in the Book of Shemos and most of those from Bereishis were drawn and created by Art Chazin, under the direction of the artist Avraham Chazin.
Guiding the Team of Artists
Our team is made up of 17 handpicked artists, guided by Avraham Chazin for several years, in order to produce the most magnificent and outstanding pictures of the highest level possible. These artists are extremely talented yet still totally dependent on the guidance and direction of Chazin. Before they can draw a scene, Chazin draws a sketch for them from which they can build the artwork. Avraham Chazin coaches them through every detail- every character, every movement and every colour scheme. This system enables Chazin to produce the final product, which is breathtakingly beautiful, and higher than any global standard.
Our Gallery in Jerusalem
Art Chazin's prestigious gallery in the King David Area, in Jerusalem, which exsisted until 2012, featured its works and was intended as an exhibition for all collectors from around the globe. Due to the massive renovation and construction work in the region, and added to that the global economic situation, the company decided to temporarily close the gallery.
