The Jewish Museum of New Jersey Presents: ‘Yitzchok Moully: Pop Art Rabbi’!!

What an incredible honor to have my first solo museum show at the  The Jewish Museum of New Jersey!
Yes, I am excited and looking forward to sharing the show with you!

This is how the museum describes the show:

“The NJ Jewish Museum is proud to present a solo show of Rabbi/Artist Yitzchok Moully. Join the museum for a journey through the evolving works of the artist. From Pop Art to and back, Rabbi/Artist Yitzchok Moully creates distinctive pieces of contemporary Jewish art that combine the bright, bold colors prevalent in pop art with the timeless and sophisticated images of Judaica and the Jewish people. His aim is to evoke themes from Torah, Kaballah and make them relevant to a modern generation. Well known for his bright, expressive Jewish pop art, Moully’s recent journey into technology of Augmented Reality takes his work to a whole new level. His current focus is to illustrate the hidden energy behind our actions. Moully utilizes the strong contrast of stark, silkscreen images with free-flowing, liquid paint to highlight his interpretation of the spiritual reaction to our actions. Prepare for a color explosion!”

PRESS RELEASE

Newark – The Jewish Museum of New Jersey presents “Yitzchok Moully: Pop Art Rabbi”-a solo art show reflecting the spiritual and artistic journey of the Chasidic rabbi turned pop artist. This exhibit, will be on display at the Jewish Museum of New Jersey from September 16th through October 21st, open on Sundays from 1-5pm.

Yitzchok Moully is a conceptual artist whose work explores the intersection of spirituality and the material world we live in. Having grown up in Melbourne, Australia, with a few formative years in Hasidic Brooklyn, Moully brings together the disparate colorful worlds of his hippie upbringing and Hasidic culture, resulting in a unique palette of colors and ideas. A Rabbi by training, Moully served as a Youth Rabbi in Basking Ridge, NJ, for ten years before embracing his creative spirit. Dubbed ever since The Pop Art Rabbi, Moully’s work distills ethereal Chassidic concepts into relatable works of art. Perhaps all art can be viewed as a conversation between viewer and artist, but for Moully this is the essence of what he does. Lending his unique voice and personality to the common space of art and ideas, his ultimate goal is for that conversation to continue well beyond the piece of art and into the world around us.

Rabbi/Artist Yitzchok Moully has created distinctive pieces of contemporary Jewish art that combine the bright, bold colors prevalent in pop art with the timeless and sophisticated images of Judaica and the Jewish people. His aim is to evoke themes from Torah, Kaballah and make them relevant to a modern generation. Known for his bright, expressive Jewish pop art, Moully’s recent journey into technology of Augmented Reality takes his work to a whole new level. His current focus is to illustrate the hidden energy behind our actions. Moully utilizes the strong contrast of stark, silkscreen images with free-flowing, liquid paint to highlight his interpretation of the spiritual reaction to our actions. Prepare for a color explosion!

The exhibit will open on Sunday, September 16th and continue through Sunday, October 21st with various programs happening on Sunday afternoons. A talk by the artist will take place on Thursday October 4th at 6pm in conjunction with the Newark Arts Festival.

The Jewish Museum of New Jersey is located within the historic Congregation Ahavas Sholom (145 Broadway, Newark). The Museum is open Sundays from 1-5 p.m. and by appointment.

    • Hi Benny,

      Yes I grew up in Melbourne, and worked for Rabbi Groner- who I’m assuming is your grandfather – in his home on erev Shabbos.

      Thanks for sharing
