Arik Levy goes Silent


Internationally renowned artist and designer Arik Levy continues to contribute substantially to our interior milieu with the creation of Silent Wall, an elegant tool for space organization, freedom and flexibility that contributes to a pleasant and productive work environment.

ALL ABOUT ARIK LEVY

“Creation is an uncontrolled muscle.” So says Arik Levy (born 1963), artist, technician, photographer, designer and filmmaker. Levy’s skills are multi-disciplinary and his work can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Best known publicly for his sculptures – such as his signature Rock pieces – his installations, limited editions and design, Levy nevertheless feels that “the world is about people, not objects.”

Hailing originally from Israel and moving to Europe after his first participation in a group sculpture exhibition in Tel-Aviv in 1986, Levy currently works in his studio in Paris.

His formation was unconventional – where surfing, as well as his art and graphic design studio, took up much of his time back home. Following studies at the Art Center Europe in Switzerland, he gained a distinction in Industrial Design in 1991.

After a stint in Japan where he consolidated his ideas producing products and pieces for exhibitions, Levy returned to Europe where he contributed his artistry to another field: contemporary dance and opera by way of set design.

The creation of his firm then meant a foray back to his first love, art and industrial design, as well as other branches of his talents.

Considering himself now more of a “feeling” artist, Levy continues to contribute substantially to our interior and exterior milieu, his work including public sculpture, as well as complete environments that can be adapted for multi use. “Life is a system of signs and symbols,” he says, “where nothing is quite as it seems.”
