Eran Shakine: A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew Knocking on Heaven’s Door
To accompany Eran Shakine's first exhibition in Germany, a catalog of the Israeli artist's large-format oil paintstick drawings has been released. Because Muslims, Jews, and Christians have much in common and are, in fact, a family, Shakine depicts them identically in his drawings. Difference becomes similarity, and the three characters reach shared insights through exploits that are both profound and funny. After all, even if their interpretations of Scripture vary, they often act alike on their joint quest to find God's love at the gates of Heaven.
