Ezra has spent many years pursuing his intense interest in nature, zoology and wildlife art. His most recognizable subjects are the animals he has painted for both commercial and private commissions. His approach to capturing a moment in time to reveal a rarely highlighted detail, an incident or fact can be a big dramatic scene or a subtle relaxed blink. He not only invites you to enjoy looking at his images, but for the viewer to be engaged and curious to learn more. Ezra's bold and distinctive style of painting reflects acute observation and knowledge of his subject and displays an intimate and emotional portrait quality and adept storytelling. Choosing to paint almost exclusively wildlife, he paints his animals as having apparent intelligence and individual distinctive personalities. Ezra finds the art of modern wildlife artist Bob Kuhn as well as classical wildlife artist, Carl Rungius, Antoine-Louis Barye, Arthur Wardle, and other artist such as W.R. Leigh, John Singer Sargent, N.C. Wyeth and Norman Rockwell inspirational and their art has influenced his style.
