The Evidence of who really painted much of the artwork of Oz Almog

Vladimir Dvorkin honoured his pact with Oz Almog not to reveal himself as the artist behind many of Almog's most well known works.  But his home movies and photographs capture the truth and make it clear that Dvorkin hoped that one day that truth would be revealed.  We found Dvorkin's home video tapes buried in a box collecting dust in Roman's grandmother's house.  While they had become quite degraded we were able to engage an expert  to meticulously recover and restore the materials.  And the evidence we needed.....
