An artist, technician, photographer, designer, filmmaker, Israeli-born Arik Levy has been based in Paris for the past 20 years. He is best known for his “Rock” sculptures, composed of mirror-polished stainless steel, which are sometimes displayed as standalone works, and sometimes integrated into functional items like shelves and coffee tables. Now considering himself more of a “feeling” artist, Levy also creates complete environments that can be adapted for different usages. “Life is a system of signs and symbols,” he says, “where nothing is quite as it seems.”

Israeli, b. 1963, based in Paris, France
