Moments after entering the world on March 24th, 1963 in Los Angeles, California, the infant is cradled in his father's arms, the left one tattooed with the concentration camp number B-14529. Eight days later, his godfather tenderly holds the newborn with a similarly branded arm, the number A-11410 clearly visible beneath the intermittent stripes of his jet black tefillin. The child's father and godfather stand side-by-side as the child is given the name, Shlomo, in memory of their very own brother, who was shot by a fleeing Nazi guard just one day before the camp was liberated.

Twenty-five years later the child has his own son, and names him Dov, after his murdered grandfather, A-11409, whose body finally weakened during a cruel winter march. His position in line continued receding until he met with the executioner's bullets at the rear of the procession. "How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee".

Stan (Shlomo) Lebovic studied at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. He has owned several illustrative service companies, and before devoting himself exclusively to Black is a Color he published a children's book, which received a Toy of the Year Award and was featured in Disneyworld and on the QVC Television Network.

Upon completion of Black is a Color, Mr. Lebovic's spiritual appetite and perpetual existential angst set their sights on what is arguably the most widely read piece of literature in the Jewish world: The Passover Haggadah.

Titled Out of Bounds, his interpretation of the Haggadah has been hailed as a work, "... not only [to] be read but [to] be studied, absorbed and savored ..." Mr. Lebovic has once again exposed us to the richness and extreme relevance found deep within traditional Jewish thought.

His spiritual struggle as a survivor's son has without a doubt molded him, and the art he creates.
