Kavana (June 2016)
"Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik is a synthesizer, harmonizing tradition and modern culture, scholarship and aesthetics, playfulness and profundity..."

Oregon Jewish Life (Dec 2015)
"Isaac synthesizes comic book figures with Jewish tradition to produce his sleek, clean-lined version of an ancient art."

KCET Artbound (Nov 2015)
"Brynjegard-Bialik brings these different types of stories together in the complex but clean layers of his papercuts, creating new meanings for the world's oldest stories as he engineers these combinations with the architectural presence of stained glass, the whimsy of gilded-age fairy tales, and the meditative aura of illuminated manuscripts."

Park LaBrea News / Beverly Press (Nov 2015)

J Weekly (Aug 2012)
