Meeting artist Eva Deutsch Costabel was truly an amazing and inspiring experience. She has lived and worked in New York for 57 years, after surviving the Holocaust and fleeing for her life for several years. She arrived in New York in 1949 and worked under artist Franz Kline. During this time she created deeply personal abstract paintings informed by her emotional journey.
Eva told me, ” Living in New York you must be educated. I don’t have many prejudices, but Boring I can’t stand.” She considers herself a colorist choosing to eat and dress in the colors that fill her wonderful works of art. My short visit with her could not do her story justice. For more on Eva’s amazing journey check out her website and blog
