Visionary

Yossi’s unique ability to foster relationships and collaborations is evident from his scope of interaction with a wide range of high caliber curators from universities, museums, art institutes, public figures, established artists and emerging talent.

Govrin developed and cultivated his vision of an arts center to support and promote multi-disciplinary artists with the inclusion of the Santa Monica community and Los Angeles in raising arts awareness, providing artist opportunities and conceiving and establishing an art space for a reputable and professional arts center to thrive from the Santa Monica Fine Arts Studio in 1985 to the Santa Monica Art Studios from 2002 to 2019.

Because of a struggle with the City of Santa Monica and its Cultural Affairs, Yossi has now founded and established MAXIMA Art Initiative with a strong and diverse staff, Board of Directors and Art Advisors that will continue his vision of bringing artists, curators, local, national and international exhibitions, multidisciplinary programs with art, poetry, music and theatre as well as art fundraisers for supporting philanthropies for a grander vision of the arts.
