"Creation is an uncontrolled muscle" according to Arik Levy (b. 1963).

Artist, technician, photographer, designer, video artist, Levy's skills are multidisciplinary and his work can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums around the world. Best known publicly for his sculptures, such as his iconic Rock pieces, his installations, limited editions, and design, Levy nonetheless feels that "the world is about people, not objects."

Originally from Israel and moved to Europe after his first participation in a collective sculpture exhibition in Tel-Aviv in 1988, Levy currently works in his studio in Paris.

His upbringing was unconventional where surfing, as well as his study of art and graphic design, took up much of his time at home. After his studies at the Art Center Europe in Switzerland, he obtained a distinction in Industrial Design in 1991.

After a season in Japan, where he consolidated his ideas by producing products and pieces for exhibitions, Levy returned to Europe, where he contributed his art to another field: contemporary dance and opera through stage design.

The creation of his firm was then a foray back into his first love, art and industrial design, as well as other branches of his talent. Respected for his furniture and lighting designs on every continent, Levy also creates lines of high-tech clothing and accessories for firms in the Far East.

Considering himself now more of a "sentimental" artist, Arik Levy continues to contribute substantially to our indoor and outdoor environment, his work includes public sculpture as well as entire environments that can be adapted for multiple uses. "Life is a system of signs and symbols," he says, "where nothing is what it seems."
