DOV LEDERBERG grew up in the Philadelphia area (graduate of Central H.S.) and began his involvement in the arts at Haverford College (BA 1963) and the Columbia University School of Fine Arts. During the Sixties he became one of the active filmmakers within the New American Underground and the N.Y. Filmmakers' Co-op. One of his works, entitled "Eargogh", an interpretation of the life of Vincent Van Gogh, starring Jack Smith and Marie Menken, was widely screened at the time.
Between 1967 and 1994 he was an independent film director, mainly for Israel TV, making documentary and educational films, as well as creating various video art works.  Since 1995 Dov has been deeply involved in using new art mediums and techniques to express and render the subtle ideas of Jewish mystical teachings and meditation. He has created many original acrylic paintings and video art compositions inspired by the Hebrew letters in the scribal style. His current work is involved with kabbalah mandalas, cosmic contemplations, visual paradigms for dialogue , triptych trips and wax congealings and acrylic emulsions within the abstract illusionist genre, essentially creating an evocative "gestalt' which invites the viewer's active interaction and interpretation. His paintings and video art are exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States and Israel.
Dov,
a widower from his wife, the artist, Yael Avi-Yonah, lives in Tzfat and Jerusalem, but makes frequent trips abroad for lectures and exhibitions.
