Mythical Dreams
by Marina Korenfeld and Eli Bezimansky

Marina Korenfeld and Eli Bezimansky are an artistic duo working in many creative fields. Both are artists, combining world mythological stories with personal experiences and literary creations. They find the fullest expression of their artistic credo in the mystical poetics of ancient civilizations, in Babylonian mysteries and Kabbalistic numerologies, the art of alchemy and the austere simplicity of Zen. Their language is Symbolism. Marina is a printmaker, Eli is a sculptor and printmaker. They’ve met in the US where they immigrated in the 90s from Odessa, Ukraine and Moscow, Russia.

Besides working on the art pieces of their own, together they organized “IDEA” – Aesthetic center for children in Brooklyn, with the main focus on the process of training the imagination, which occurs through games and creative assignments during the courses in Russian, art, and sculpture.

Marina and Eli live on Staten Island together with their most challenging and creative projects: Leo (14) and Roman (12)
