JCHE Resident's Art on Display at Sudbury Library
Posted: February 1, 2017
Raised in the Crimean Peninsula, Lev Rozman received his PhD from the State Oceanographic Institute in Moscow and was awarded the rank of Senior Research Fellow by the Council of Ministers of the USSR. He managed a laboratory for the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences and was also in charge of a number of environmental projects and expeditions in the Black and Mediterranean Seas, and the Atlantic Ocean. He has authored numerous papers and has participated in many conferences.
Art has always been his love and passion. He received some schooling in drawing and watercolor when he was a teenager and made substantial strides as an artist after visiting the great museums of the world. His artwork has been exhibited in Pepperell and Brighton, MA, and Hollis, NH. He was appointed to the Pepperell Cultural Council in the fall of 2015 and to the Framingham Cultural Council in the summer of 2016. A signed print of one his drawings is hanging at the Massachusetts Cultural Council in Boston.
Lev likes painting portraits because he feels he has a gift for capturing a person’s character—a gift he describes as being inspired by an inscrutable force. “When I draw a portrait, I feel as though somebody moves my hand,” he says.
Last fall, Lev's Albert Einstein sketch was auctioned off during JCHE's Annual Gala.

Following in his grandfather's footsteps, Lev's 11 year-old grandson Isaac Rozman is an avid art enthusiast.
