I have been meaning to write about these iconography classes ever since I met the artist last year at the PULSE Alternative Gift Market. There was also a recent gallery display of incredible iconography during the last First Fridays on Penn avenue. Artisan hosted a show of works by the Russian Icon painter Simeon Larivonovoff. I’ve included a short documentary about Simeon Larivonovoff below. I really enjoyed seeing these icons and reading more about the process.
