Masterful execution, a gimlet-keen eye and boundless imagination, are the crux of Shimon Okshteyn’s work. Since the early days of living in America, Okshteyn has been a keen and sensitive observer of the external environment, voraciously absorbing all he sees. Okshteyn's imagination is captivated by the bewildering variety of life offered in America, according to the artist.
