The symbol of the monkey has disturbed and inspired many artists since ancient times. In European culture, monkey was considered to be a symbol of sin, of deceit, of desire for luxury and idleness. In the ancient Mysteries, the monkey were a condition of the person before he got the spirit. In the East, however, the symbol of the monkey has often meant exactly the opposite. For example, in Indian mythology, the monkey Hanuman, endowed with an extraordinary mind, was a wise adviser of the Monkey Tribe King and a faithful servant of Rama. In China, the monkey cry embodies a deep despair, while in the Chinese horoscope monkey is a symbol of fantasy, as it is usually the fastest to adapt to changing circumstances. The Chinese see in monkey a sharp mind, a good memory and a sense of humor. However, the Chinese monkey has its drawbacks as well. These are: laziness, narcissism, excessive emotionality, stealth and deceit.
The joint artwork of Nirit Dekel and Lena Revenko combines within itself two different art mediums, glass and graphics. Lena Revenko often uses an image of a monkey in her art. It is used as a symbol of hidden passions, which are visible only to the observer. Nirit Dekel created a fragile sanctuary for these passions out of tiny abstract glass elements. The collaboration between creatures and small pieces of glass has formed a new reality. In the eyes of the observer, the glass pieces have been transformed from separated elements into the rain, rocks, and even frozen sound.

Recently I got an email from Denmark, that made me feel very happy:
I’m an artist from Denmark — and I also teach at an artschool for children. By incidence I came by your website, and I was very inspired by your artwork. I decided to show your work to the children, and they all made a picture of a tamed monster. Maybe you will like to see the children’s work? They are between 6 and 9 years old.
You`ll find a link here
Thank you, Jane and kids, your monsters are so beautiful!

I’ve started a new collaboration with a costume designer from Moscow, Nadejda Russ. Nadejda designs all the costumes for amazing circus show «Legend» of brothers Zapashny. She doesn’t come from the «classic» fashion design, and I’m fascinated by her creative ideas. Now we work on an urban fashion project, where my part is to create fabrics based on my art.
Today I made the first print tries. I never before made fabrics, it is interesting and I learn a lot.

One of the biggest pleasures for me is a collaboration with talented artists in other fields. I importune many of my friends with «Let’s do something cool together», and sometimes it works out. Recently I made a collaboration project with a swiss ceramic artist Bettina Ammann.
