The Wonderland Experience: Sasha Galitsky after Gennady Kalinovsky Sasha Galitsky became acquainted with the art of Gennady Kalinovsky (1929–2006) through his illustrations of Alice in Wonderland, published in 1974. Both artists were born in Russia (Galitsky immigrated to Israel in 1990) and began to paint at a very early age, participating in children’s contests and receiving enthusiastic responses; and both love working with wood. This exhibition is a visual dialogue between Kalinovsky’s small, dense, black-and-white illustrations and Galitsky’s large, free, colorful paintings.
