avatar Yitzchok Moully
As a child Rabbi Yitzchok Moully's upbringing was off the beaten path.Raised by former hippies, Moully was exposed to far more color than one would expect in the rigorously orthodox Chassidic community. Moully's formal education in day schools in Australia and later at the Rabbinical College of America did not include formal art classes but his inner passion yearned for expression.After dabbling in various forms of art Moully found an expression for his creativity in the silkscreen process. Moully's art contrasts strong Judaic and Chassidic images with vibrant bold colors to create a startling combination which he describes as "Chassidic Pop Art". Moully's art reveals that the essence of Chassidic thought is far from black and white. Under the black hat there is a wealth of vibrant colorful energy waiting to be released. Moully is the Youth Rabbi at the Chabad Jewish Center in Basking Ridge NJ, where he resides together with his wife Batsheva and four children, a Rabbi by day and an artist by night - when he gets the chance.
