Lev Moroz is a 17 year old artist. Growing up in a family of artists (Natalia Moroz and Sergey Zhiboedov) he learns a lot just by being around. Lev started doing linocuts when he was 13 and proved to have a good eye for graphics. He likes animals and tries to depict them in their natural environment. Lev is also interested in Medieval knights and armor. Now his portfolio includes over a dozen of linocuts. During the summer of 2009, Lev worked on the new series of linocuts based on his high school experience. Lev's artworks have been purchased by collectors in the US, Japan, Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand.
Recently, Lev started taking part in art festivals and did these two shows:
Pineville Fall Fest, October 18, 2008, Pineville, NC - Merit Award
Autumn Treasures, October 11-12, 2008, Waxhaw, NC
