In the past several years, community tastemaker Joy Mahana’s large stunning megasized resin, acrylic, and metallic abstracts have been featured in an array of luxurious homes throughout the country.
Now Joy Mahana has been dazzling the art world with her new collection of portraits that portray a fresh take on a traditional subject.
Joy acknowledges that the past and present coexist in every moment of our daily lives, and has always revered our great rabbis while pursuing her art career. Her modern collection of 30 rabbinic portraits captures their ever present gaze and personality with vivid colors and lacquered finishes.
“Once I started painting the rabbis, I couldn’t stop. I loved reading about their influence on their communities and impact on Jewish history. I decided to create a series of paintings that would bring the images of our holy rabbis into our modern homes.”
Acclaimed interior designers Warren Bond and Nick Calder have featured her rabbinic works in many of their stunning spaces.
“Joy’s “Rabbi’s” Brilliant! In color and subject!… They put me in the mood of Warhol! I have used them in a show house and also a clients reading area. I find them both serious and tongue in cheek, humorous.” Nick Calder
“I find Joys work romantic as well a powerful use of color and form, full of spirt and heart.” Warren Bohn
