BEHIND THE LENS
Arik Chen is a Professional Photographer and artist, resides in Israel and teaches Photography Art at Artistico, Studio and Institute of Art & Creative Photography in Tel Aviv.
Arik’s true passion and field of expertise is abstract and Fine Art photography. He was awarded first prize for Abstract Photography, International Juried Photography Competition, Florida (USA, 2010). From years immersed in his craft, Arik views abstract photography (especially, abstract in nature) as one of the most creative and most inspiring art forms. He takes an otherwise ordinary photograph and shoots it with just the right light, angle or focus, to create a palette of exquisite colors, patterns and textures.
Arik is an avid world traveler and his expeditions are the major source of his inspiration. So many of his journeys are ensconced in nature, in the pristine and the abstract, in the local people, their natural habitat and their culture in India, Morocco, Cuba, China, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia and more.
Celebrated photographer, Elliot Erwitt, said, “To me, photography is an art of observation... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything
to do with the way you see them.”
Arik's photographic works are based on insightful observations fused with his own exciting composition and unique point of view.
