About Ezra Bejar

image10

EB is an artist/scientist (born in Mexico City) based in San Diego, California.  His paintings emerge the way organisms grow out of a petri dish – incubated by art and science. His style is considered abstract neo-expressionism, but this is limiting. Ezra never settles with an idea, style or media. In his words: “Artistic expression has been the most liberating enterprise in which I have been involved. My thoughts and ideas flow from a time scale that include views of my ancestors in Spain, Turkey, Cuba and Mexico to my most current experiences in the USA and traveling around the world. My thoughts arise instinctively and naturally and I use them to create art pieces for which I have no expectations.” Merging ideas from nature and cullture have resulted in Ezra’s construction of new forms and spaces, and reformulating them — a child’s creative game with no end. His art is appreciated by people of all ages and has been shown and collected in the US, Mexico, and Europe.
