“Creation is an uncontrolled muscle” according to Arik Levy.
Artist, technician, photographer, designer, video artist, Levy’s skills are multi–disciplinary and his work can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Best known publicly for his sculptures—such as his signature Rock pieces—his installations, limited editions and design, Levy nevertheless feels “The world is about people, not objects.”
After a stint in Japan where he consolidated his ideas producing products and pieces for exhibitions, Levy returned to Europe where he contributed his artistry to another field – contemporary dance and opera by way of set design.
The creation of his firm then meant a foray back to his first love, art and industrial design, as well as other branches of his talents. Respected for his furniture and light designs on all continents, Levy also creates hi–tech clothing lines and accessories for firms in the Far East.
Considering himself now more of a “feeling” artist, Arik Levy continues to contribute substantially to our interior and exterior milieu, his work including public sculpture, as well as complete environments that can be adapted for multi use. “Life is a system of signs and symbols,” he says, “where nothing is quite as it seems.”
Levy has created SYSTEM for THG Paris, a customizable brassware collection to reflect its owner’s image. Available in 26 colors and a variety of styles.
The creative idea of appropriation is part of the artist’s identity. Like every other piece by Levy, the System collection carries an inspiring message, which encourages each individual to choose their own tap collection by playing with materials and finishes.
For the first time, THG Paris is collaborating with an artist whose message transcends design.
