Brazil-Morocco

 

Kirszenbaum's journeys to exotic locations stemmed from an urgent attempt to escape the pain and memories of Europe. Once abroad the artist was able to restart his life and his artwork from this period, focusing on local figures, celebrates life with an expressionistic style sometimes verging on abstraction. These were created while being in Brazil.
