Avrumi Mashinsky discovers the painting thanks to his father, who also was a painter. The passion for drawing overlaps with his studies. So, at the age of sixteen, the young man starts volunteering in a studio of a theater decorator. This experience of decorative art, the use of pure paints, the break with the traditional perspective, will later be useful for Mashinsky. Since he started painting, until today, Mashinsky has explored all currents derived from impressionism.
Avrumi Mashinsky has launched a series called The Manhatan skyline, devoting several paintings to the same theme, which explores, from a plastic point of view, disintegrating and dismantling forms.
This period ends when he discovers the Orphism. Painting built solely on the basis of color contrasts (without values, without lines and without perspective), the orphism is a theoretical reflection on an autonomous plastic existence, without any relation to reality. Alongside these personal explorations, Mashinsky discovers three abstract works by Wassily Kandinsky, which has had a major influence on him. Since then, Avrumi Mashinsky, painted circular shapes inspired by the solar globe and then colored disc, which are clasified as abstraction.
For a short period of time, in 2009, Mashinsky resumes, for financial reasons, figuration, painting still life and naked women, in a more naturalistic style.
After this phase of hesitation, which came to an end in 2010, Avrumi Mashinsy rediscovered abstract forms, through works such as Circles and decorative works. This period culminates with his solo exhibition at the International Exhibition in Paris in 2012.
