Elliot Fallas

Elliot Fallas received a ‘starter kit’ of brush, oil paints and canvas as a Hanukkah present from his son, and an artist was born. In the following years, he began to study with an internationally known professional artist, developing his unique take on a classic Impressionist style. He strives to stay spontaneous and follow his instincts, especially when they lead him to “paint outside the lines” – breaking a few rules for the sake of honesty and emotion, he says, keeps his work exciting and evocative. Recently, Fallas has begun to experiment with what is his most significant and personally rewarding subject: Judaica art. He is in the process of collecting images and processing the powerful impressions these images make. “In oils depicting rabbis, soldiers, and citizens at the Wailing Wall painting I have tried to capture the raw emotion, power and sometimes even violence that represents the modern Jewish struggle in Israel,” he says. Fallas, above all, is grateful for the gift of his artistic talent. “I truly believe that my talent was given to me ‘for such a time as this’ – my retirement years. It has brought much joy and passion to my life.”
