Ari Roussimoff

Artist, painter, sculptor, and filmmaker.


"Freemasonry provides the finest values with which to live by and with which to enrich humanity. Freemasonry encompasses morality, philosophy, spirituality and mysticism. And all the arts and sciences. Based on the most profound biblical models, here is a way of living and seeing which has the strength to unite mankind in a far deeper and more successful manner then any political movement can ever aspire to. Masonic themes have been a constant throughout my artwork. In addition to canvasses devoted to Freemasonry, I am frequently drawn to also include Masonic subjects and symbols in some of my other paintings."
