Lipstein graduated from the Fine Art print faculty of The National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 2006. Upon graduating he received the CAP Foundation award that allowed him to produce an exhibition of large scale paintings the following year. In 2009 he received an MA in Fine Art also at NCAD and rejoined the Graphic Studio Dublin where he had first been a member in 2002.
Born in Tel Aviv he moved to Dublin in 1983. He lives and works in rural county Kildare. By recording his dreams in writing since 1979 he developed a certain understanding of mythology, symbolism and mainly the way emotional projection appears visually through dream work. Since the late nineties, after a career in natural medicine, he was fully committed to printmaking and painting, using mythical-visual narrative and atmospheric data from his dreams as source material for his visual compositions. Lipstein’s work is included in numerous public and private collections across Ireland, Europe, the USA, Israel and Australia.
