Holocaust Survivor’s Art Kept Him Alive
In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, I share Saul Gonzalez’s recent interview with Kalman Aron on Public Radio International’s broadcast, The World. Saul visits Kalman at his L.A. studio and learns how art has kept him alive, not just during the Holocaust, but throughout his lifetime.
“When you step inside artist Kalman Aron’s modest apartment in Beverly Hills, a lifetime of creation surrounds you. The walls are covered in paintings and finished canvases are stacked on the floors, a dozen deep. The paintings range from portraits to landscapes to abstract works. They’re just a fraction of the roughly 2,000 pieces Aron says he’s created over the decades.”
