Arthur Levy announced as the Artist in Residence for April at Sanctuary on Camelback Resort
By: Arthur Levy
Arthur Levy found a passion for art early on, majoring in fine art and painting as an undergraduate, he then attended the prestigious Georgetown University School of Medicine. Seven years later, after his residency and fellowship, Levy began a 27 year career in Cardiovascular surgery in Atlanta. After retirement he returned to the art world, exploring the encaustic medium, which Levy says he has been developing his techniques as well as his voice for the past 18 years.
Throughout his life and work, Levy has continued to be fascinated by and explore art and science with his work centering on the concept of "Beginnings."
Levy "became entranced with the encaustic technique", who had dabbled in other mediums in the past including Tempera, Acrylic and Oil, but sought more texture in his work. He began using paste, cement and acrylic substrates ultimately discovering encaustic, intrigued by the process, the resulting texture and its history. "The word encaustic comes from the Greek, "Encaustikos"
