Rafi Ajl is a Berkeley, California-based artist who is obsessed with form and process. Working in a variety of mediums and practices, Ajl creates work under his longtime moniker, THE LONG CONFIDENCE. He is driven by the possibilities of materiality, an insatiable curiosity, and an undisputed reverence for the pressures of the creative process.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Ajl grew up in a deeply artistic home where making things was a way of life. He can hardly remember a time when he wasn’t taking things apart and putting them back together. Ajl holds an MFA in Design from the California College of the Arts.
