Hipsters and Hassids
Paintings by Elke Reva Sudin
“Hipsters and Hassids” celebrates two diverse cultural groups who maintain an uneasy coexistence in the creatively charged neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Sudin paints portraits and urban landscapes to reflect the similarities these groups have despite their conflicting values and lifestyles. Sudin is an observant Jew and young artist who was rigorously schooled in traditional illustration techniques and creates paintings that are influenced by emerging trends in graphic novels, graffiti and the street art of Brooklyn.

In his review of this exhibition, realist painter and art critic Thomas Shelford writes,
“Sudin’s work provides a visual roadmap displaying the connections between modern urban multiculturalism and the eternal human need for community and spiritual connection. Her “Hipsters and Hassids” series is relevant to broader cultural trends, while remaining specific to the beloved eccentricities of Brooklyn itself.”
