Bernath, Chaim

Chaim Bernath is the resident artist of Calligraphix, Brooklyn, NY. His fascination with illuminated Jewish texts goes back to his yeshiva days and the connection between art and Torah. Bernath's ketubahs reflects a rich appreciation for the beauty of Jewish texts. Gathering ideas from many sources - both traditional and modern, he has developed a unique style of deep and rich colors with graceful lines and fine detail. Each ketubah is hand-drawn with artist's pencils, inks, pastels and gold-tone illumination.
