Navigating through fantasy and reality are essential to Ronen Azulay’s work, His life journey from Israel to New York as an artist, sexual being and immigrant have been a roadmap to his creativity. These interwoven narratives are pieced together in his work through layers of paint and repurposed textiles. As you examine each area, you can feel these different realities playing off of each other on his patchwork canvases.

His art mirrors a thrilling journey into an unfamiliar place with all of its complexities, trying to assimilate to a new identity or reality (while stay true to his background and roots)
