      Artist Talk: Lev Moross

      Lev Moross - A Poet among Print Makers Renowned print maker Lev Moross is a storyteller with an exceptional tale to tell. As a young man, he ran away from his home in Siberia to find his future and wound up in Los Angeles making fine art prints with Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. Moross will share his stories of art and artists as featured speaker for the Saturday, June 15 Artist Talk Series at Studio Channel Islands Art Center (SCIAC), 2222 E. Ventura Blvd., Camarillo. The talk takes place at 1p.m. in the Blackboard Gallery. Admission is free to SCIART members, $10 for nonmembers. Master print maker Lev Moross immigrated to Los Angeles from Russian in 1975 with the dream of revolutionizing fine art in America. He came to the land of the free armed with a distinguished background as a fine artist specializing in painting and sculpting but in the lean years of his early career in America he took up work acting in movies (once playing a Russian professor) and found himself designing covers for Capitol Records. Eventually he was able to bring his skills as a fine artist and print maker together to realize his dream of bringing fine art to the masses at affordable prices through limited edition serigraphs. Serigraphing is an advanced form of silk-screening, used to produce handmade color prints. Andy Warhol was the first major artist to make the serigraph process acceptable to collectors, but it was Moross who raised the process to its current exalted status. Moross Studio was the first to publish renowned artists Melanie Taylor Kent and Yamagata, among others. At its height, the studio employed 45 print makers working on eight presses in a 44,000 square foot studio. In 1980 Warhol approached Moross to have his Mickey Mouse picture serigraphed and Lev’s dream of revolutionizing fine art in America became a reality.
