DRIZZLE NYC BY MORAN OVADIA
My name is Moran
and I'm a Chocolate Artist
As a child I would spend many hours in my grandfather’s workshop, watching him create and craft all sorts of wonderful things. I knew one day I too would become an artist. My passion for art and my creative nature led me to focus my studies on art and design. I love all forms of art.
I feel that creativity is the most honest form of expression. A journey that begins deep inside you and makes its way through your mind and heart eventually pouring out through your hands into a form that holds a piece of you inside of it.
Out of all the mediums I have experimented with,
chocolate is the most special.
I wasn’t interested in becoming a chocolatier or pastry chef, I was fascinated by chocolate as a molding and sculpting substance. How could I use chocolate in my creating and art?
When I first started creating with chocolate, I experimented with unique flavor profiles and pairing fresh herbs with a variety of chocolates. As my curiosity grew, I found myself engaging in more playtime and developing my style and technique as a chocolate artist. My first great success with chocolate came in the form of my Chocolate Fashionistas. I molded fashion figure chocolate pops that won awards at The Big Chocolate Show in New York in the innovative/ New Noteworthy category, earning both a silver and a gold medal. After participating in several chocolate shows and embracing the positive responses to my work I realized I need to share my passion.
My love for chocolate and the satisfaction I gain from my chocolate playtime has led me to create my company and my mission to provide some delicious, unique, and joyful fun for everyone.
