The 25 Great Masters

The 25 Great Masters Project - 25 reliefs by artists in various fields of art, was born out of Alexander Cherkov's desire to thank people who contributed to human culture and influenced his personal perception of art in particular and life in general. The "25" influential artists' series was created in 2019, the year Alexander and his family turned 25 years old in Eretz Israel, and it symbolizes the years in which Alexander developed as a creative artist and art teacher for hundreds of students who studied with him and were an integral part of his personal development. .

Cherkov was influenced by their unique attitude to art and to life itself. The collection of quotes reflects the similar and shared vision of the various artists regarding art and its place in their lives.
