New Mural #WeAllBelong up in Brooklyn

New Mural #WeAllBelong up in Brooklyn

Its Up!! After lots of dreaming, lots and lots of work, Im super proud to share my very first mural #WeAllBelong  This mural is the first part of my dream to put up 10 murals around Crown Heights Brooklyn depicting the Rebbe’s 10 Mitzvah Campaign. More to come!! The concept in a nut shell is: Unity through recognizing our differences on the outside, while highlighting our oneness on the inside. Created in partnership with the Jewish Children’s Museum and in conjunction with The Ruderman Chabad Inclusion Initiative – RCII Special thanks to Sarah Kranz-Ciment for believing in a loopy artist full of crazy ideas. I look forward to working with you on many more projects. Check out a short time lapse of part of the making of the mural. Here is an article about the mural and its story: November 21, 2018 A Mobile Mural -#WeAllBelong Unity through recognizing our differences on the outside, while highlighting our oneness on the inside. #WeAllBelong The enclave of Crown Heights, is well-known for its prominent Chabad presence. While at first glance its inhabitants may appear to form a rather uniform group, in reality it is comprised of a unique mesh of individuals with varying abilities, perspectives and origins. In partnership with the Jewish Children’s Museum and in conjunction with The Ruderman Chabad Inclusion Initiative (RCII), artist Yitzchok Moully aims to promote ahavas yisroel, love for every person, by means of a mural in the neighborhood prominently displayed outside the JCM building. It highlights the Torah’s message that each person is a world unto themselves regardless of their abilities, the color of their skin, invisible mental health conditions, socioeconomic status,...

Tree of Life. Pittsburgh PA. 10.27.18

Tree of Life. Pittsburgh PA. 10.27.18

Attempting to deal with the darkness in this world. I was moved to respond to the terror in the way I know best; through my art. Tree of Life. Pittsburgh PA. 10.27.18 Click here to purchase a print of the Tree of Life – 25% of sales will be donated to the families of the victims of the terror attack. Below were my thoughts and words as I created the painting. Darkness “Good morning, Today Monday, two days after the horrific terrorist attack that took place at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Where eleven souls were killed just for being Jewish and coming to synagogue to pray. I felt moved to create a painting that reflects my feelings and perhaps the feelings of others, to mourn and to celebrate the lives of those who were lost.” “So, I’m going to begin with thick black, and paint a beautiful white canvas black. To create the mood to create the environment, that we live in, surrounded by darkness, surrounded by black. Yet somehow we need to carry we have to be that light in the darkness, so I’m creating the darkness in order that then together we can create the light.”     Tree of Life “The second step in the process, we have a black background, now we have a silkscreen of a beautiful tree of life. We are taking gold, beautiful metallic gold to be used to create our tree using the silkscreen method. Now some bronze, different metallic colors to create an element of fire, a glow, these metallic colors stand out as they come up...

Illuminated Pages – Chapter 1 Tanya

Illuminated Pages – Chapter 1 Tanya

Illuminated Tanya. Chapter 1 Stainless steel, Plexiglas, acrylic, light. 44x27in After years of thinking this piece over, I’m super excited to share the first in a series titled ‘Illuminated Pages’. The first in the series is Tanya. The letters of the first page of Tanya have been cut out, with a painted Plexiglas and light behind it. When we learn the Tanya we reveal the hidden light. The letters of the Tanya are the source of the light. The Tanya is the ‘Torah SheBal Peh’ of Chassidus – the written Torah of Chassidus. Each letter, each word is holy and pure, written with much intent. The Tanya is the embodiment of Kaballah the hidden part of the Torah handed down from teacher to disciple through the generations. The Tanya brings these secrets to the public, accessible to the masses. Illuminated Pages Tanya attempts to visualize this concept, bringing the letters to life. The letters of the Tanya are the source of light, when learned, the letters themselves light up our life. (Thank you Kehot publishing for permission of...
Disrupting Darkness – Canukah Painting

Disrupting Darkness – Canukah Painting

Happy Chanukah to all my friends out there! Chanukah would not be complete for me if I did not attempt to share my joy of the Holiday through my art. So after some thought, this is what I came up with. Recently I purchased some black gesso – it’s the stuff you prime the canvas with before you paint – for another project.  Working with a blank black canvas is a whole new experience, and I’m enjoying the challenge. Chanukah being all about lighting up the darkness was the perfect opportunity to work with a deep black canvas and see where I can take it. Beginning with a gold menorah at the bottom of the large canvas I began painting in the glowing flames one day at a time, while taking photos and video of the process. In keeping with the spirit of the menorah and the message of Chanukah to keep growing in our effort/holiness, I am shearing the images of the menorah as it grows and shares more light, day by day. Enjoy and please share your feedback Much appreciated & Happy Chanukah Moully Click here to view the time lapse day by day  Scroll down to see all the days of Chanukah...

New Art. Shavuot

New Art. Shavuot

Enjoy your unique relationship with the Torah! Wishing us all A Happy Shavuot! – The day G-D descended on Mt Sinai and gave us the Torah/married the Jewish people. The traditional Chassidic greeting is ; On Shavuot “we should receive the Torah and internalize its message”, deepening our relationship with G-D the giver of the Torah! Little secret, the idea for this Holiday piece for Shavuot is at least 5 years old. I wanted a Holiday piece for each one of the Holidays. For a while I was thinking how to incorporate the Holiday food in the image, but in the end I went with the interplay of a Ashkenaz/ European Torah and a Sefard/Middle Eastern Torah. They are both identical on the inside, only the outer trappings reflect the countries and societies they evolved in. So Happy Shavuot and – Enjoy your unique relationship with the...

First Guest on Hevria’s Podcast: HevriaCast

First Guest on Hevria’s Podcast: HevriaCast

Happy to share my first time as a guest on a podcast! Elad Nehorai of Hevria fame decided it was time to create a podcast to add to the amazing repertoire of Hevria offerings, and he chose me to be the first guest! Here is a bit about the podcast from the Hevria website and a link to the podcast below. Happy listing, and please share your thoughts. “I am beyond excited to share Hevria’s latest project with you: HevriaCast. The idea behind this podcast is simple: we want to take you into the minds and thoughts of creative Jews. In other words, it is a continued extension of what we do here on the blog. Each episode, I will speak to a new guest about his or her experience creating whatever they create. But this isn’t really an interview: it’s an in-depth conversation where we get personal and thoughtful about what we do. In my humble opinion, this is what makes podcasting so interesting and fun: it is a truly intimate media format, one in which people can go into far more nuance and depth than almost any other form of media. So far, I’ve recorded 5 podcasts and it’s been an absolute joy. We’ve put up two episodes for our launch (Yitzchok Moully and Noah Lubin!), and we should be launching the other 3 pretty quickly, as we’d love to get right into the thick of our work quickly. You can subscribe to us on iTunes, Google Play, and SoundCloud. We would so appreciate any reviews and subscribes early on, as it helps us get in the...

Just in time for Passover, here is my latest in my Jewish Holiday pop art series. Square Matzah! Yes a few years back I created a very similar piece – with round hand made Matzah. Well it turns out, with all the color, some people did not recognize the round spheres as Matzah. So in the spirit of inclusiveness here is the new ‘Square Matzah’ piece. No matter what Matzah does it for you – make sure you eat Matzah on both nights of the Seder – and for the Seder its preferable to get round hand made Matzah. Happy...

A Miracle Menorah?

A Miracle Menorah?

A few weeks back I was contemplating the miracle of Chanukah and it got me thinking; every night of Chanuah we light our menorah and after a few hours it goes out. What would happen if we lit a menorah that lasted eight days? Would it be a miracle? What if we put enough oil to last eight days? Would it still be a miracle? Are there miracles today? Can we, with our passion, be the catalyst to miracles in our lives? Are miracles are only when oil last longer than it should? What would it mean to create a Menorah that lasts eight days? How would it impact our understanding of the miracles of old? What message would a Menorah lasting eight days say today? Perhaps we can be the miracles we are looking for Perhaps we have more oil inside of us than we realize Perhaps we can share our lights for eight days and longer, sharing our passion and conviction. Perhaps we can change the world with exactly the amount of oil we have inside of ourselves. Which led me to fashion a rather unconventional menorah; one that could last eight days. The idea came to me about two weeks before Chanukah, not enough time to test out how physics wicks and oil impact conceptual art to create the menorah in my minds eye. Instead I went looking for a commercially available item that could be adapted. The only available item that fit the bill was a 24-hole clear glass vase, which I filled with oil and placed eight wicks. On the first night of Chanukah...

S. FL Press: “Chasidic pop artist visits South Florida”

S. FL Press: “Chasidic pop artist visits South Florida”

By Marvin Glassman South Florida Sun-Sentinel Not all Chabad rabbis are identified with the color black – referring to a black coat, black beard and black hat, as is the custom of rabbis in the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. Chabad Rabbi Yitzchok Moully is also known as a Chasidic pop artist, whose bright and bold colors of his paintings and attire (he wears orange socks, green tie and a pinkyarmulke) make him distinct. He spoke to a captive audience of approximately 100 people recently at the Chabad of Southwest Broward in Cooper City. Moully is a rabbi as well as a modern day artist that art critics consider as a Jewish Andy Warhol. He has produced many of his paintings using the photo silkscreen process, combining strong Chasidic and other Judaic images for exhibits, such as dreidels, a Kiddush cup, rabbis who were dancing together, using vibrant colors to create paintings to express himself artistically. Moully was not sure whether his talent in art was leading him astray from the life of a rabbi. Moully served as assistant rabbi at the Chabad Jewish Center in Basking Ridge, N.J. “Was I leading a balanced life, I was not sure,” said Moully in his talk at the Chabad of Southwest Broward. “My rabbi told me that God gave me a gift to be an artist and that I should use my talent well. He was right. All of us have gifts from God and we owe it to ourselves to use our gifts to strengthen our relationship with God and each other.” Moully then described some of the more than 25 of his...
Pittsburgh Art Event  Article

Pittsburgh Art Event Article

This rabbi can paint, finding color in the black-and-white world around him The Jewish Chronicle – This rabbi can paint finding color in the black and white world around him by Toby Tabachnick     When Yitzchok Moully, a Chabad-Lubavitch rabbi, visits Pittsburgh for the first time later this month, one of his first stops will be the Andy Warhol Museum. It might seem strange that a rabbi from the rigorously Orthodox movement has the Warhol on his to-do list, with its cutting edge and sometimes controversial art. But it was Warhol — one of Pittsburgh’s favorite sons and arguably the leading figure of the mid-20th-century pop-art movement — who has been a foremost source of inspiration for Moully, also known as “The Pop Art Rabbi.” Take a look at Moully’s colorful, silkscreen prints and you might have to do a double take. At first blush, they look like they could be Warhols, but the repeated images separated into individual squares are not soup cans or sneakers or Marilyn Monroe; instead, Moully’s subjects include dreidles and apples and hamantaschen….

New Art. Let There Be Light II

New Art. Let There Be Light II

A few months ago I completed a piece titled “Let there be light” It was well received and commented on via facebook. One comment I received from Rabbi Dov Muchnik was that the piece was missing  third candle. The Rebbe had once told his father, famed artist Michoel Muchnik that when he paints Shabbat candles they should have a third candle, that of a young girl in the family, as it is our custom for a young girl to begin lighting Shabbat candles from the age of three. So  here is the new interpretation on the piece titled “Let there be light II” with not one but two small candled lighting up the world. Acrylic on canvas 40×40 in $2500...

In the News: LA Jewish Journal. Chassidic Pop Art: Moully’s Colourful Soul

In the News: LA Jewish Journal. Chassidic Pop Art: Moully’s Colourful Soul

Chassidic Pop Art: Moully’s Colourful Soul by Milad Doroudian March 30, 2015 here are things that just don’t seem to mix at times, such as mustard on oatmeal, but when it comes to pop-art and Hasidic Judaism, you might just be surprised at how well the two go together. Yitzchok Moully, a rabbi, a man of learning, and a brilliant artist dwells majestically into the world of pop art, and post-pop art rather tactfully. With works that blend the modern twists of aesthetics with the old teachings of Judaism, he manages to plunge the viewer into the imperceptible realm of non-contradictory dualities. What might seem as contrasting ideas, in fact are shown to be not so mutually exclusive. The first thing that reveals itself rather immediately, is the canny use of colours upon satisfying screen prints, and visually refined canvases. In fact, the use of colours is what makes Moully’s work so special, for he has taken what we know as pop-art and he has refurbished it with more inspiring and dazzling colours. In a sense there is something rather confounding to the colourful means that Moully employs so skilfully, especially in his abstract work that resembles gaudy and vibrant firework shows. Perhaps the best example of this is the piece where a man is blowing a shofar, where colourful streams are shown to permeate from it, as reserved for the ears of the children of Yisrael. It becomes immediately obvious therefore that the extravagant use of colours is not only meant as a hollow, or shallow exhibition for the pleasure of the eyes, rather it is meant to touch...
