Zvi Tolkovsky has been creating artist books for many years. Nowadays, he is working on a first publication of his artist book. Towards the launching of this book, planned for the end of 2013, we decided to publish materials from Zvi’s artist books, including selected layouts from the future publication. [» » »]
Meetings with Zvi Tolkovsky
Zvi Tolkovski is an Israeli artist, curator, teacher, collector. We wanted to meet Zvi since long ago, even before we initiated Art-in-Process.com, due to his unique artistic style and wide cultural baggage.
We had met Zvi at his studio at Dereh Hebron st., Jerusalem, and also later, when he moved to a new studio at Givat Shaul. We asked for Zvi’s opinion on contemporary art in Israel and abroad, inquired about his artistic methods, the experience as a teacher at the Betzalel Arts Academy, and also about his collections.
