The Brighton Beach Bible by Joel Sil­ver­stein

Artist and Author Joel Silverstein has published an autobiographical painted narrative based on the Exodus story of the Hebrew Bible. Offering 64 stunning full-page images this startling work is both an artist’s catalog raisonné and comic book-style sequential art. Silverstein depicts Brighton Beach and Coney Island, the famed recreational New York shoreline from the 1970s- 2010s, infusing the images with Pop cultural and art historical resonance, where seemingly time stands still.
