Craftsmen

Our spotlight on operative men of the craft, whose labor and work embody Masonic principles and virtue

“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman, but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.”

– Louis Nizer

Meet this month’s Craftsman

Bro. Ari Roussimoff

“I started seeking Freemasonry symbols; I wanted to paint these symbols, which led me to become a Mason. These were mystical, abstract spiritual forms. I was attracted to the style of cubism, the geometric patterns, and occasionally use squares as the subject of composition to emphasize a subject in my paintings. My Masonic pictures are part of life; Freemasonry is meant to be a guide in life to build a society.”
