About ITZIK BENSHALOM

 
 
  • Biography
    Since I was a child I worked with my father, sculptor Itzik Benshalom Benshalom left behind a significant estate. I want to use this platform to keep people happy with details from my father's collection that I am interested in selling. Three monomaltic works are exhibited in the permanent exhibition of the Grounds for Sculptures in the United States It will be a great joy to continue the tradition of my late father

    The sculptures of Itzik Benshalom reflect passion for life and relationships.

    Through this overview of the last 4 decades of the artist's work, a sense of
    discovery of the human experience becomes apparent. Varieties of connections
    made by the abstracted figures are shown through the use of interlocking soft
    and flowing forms juxtaposed with angular lines. How the figures are positioned
    in relation to each other helps to define the interaction. In some, a clear relationship
    is explored while others remain more mysterious. About his work Benshalom states,
    "My work flows, as life flows. I tell people not to think about my work. If they love it,
    just love it. That's what I do." 
    Born in Hadera, Israel in 1945, Benshalom became a merchant marine at the age of
    fifteen. This formative experience influenced his work as he traveled the world several
    times soaking in new images and textures. Upon completing his military service to the
    Israeli Navy, Benshalom knew that he wanted to work with metal-a material that had
    always fascinated him.

    In 1967, he and his brother-in-law set up a foundry specializing in the lost wax method
    of casting sculpture. For  years he worked with other artists from Israel and from all over
    the world, helping them to realize their concepts. Benshalom states that he can't say he
    even thought about it, but one day he began to work on an idea for his own sculpture .
    From then on he stopped doing other artist's work and began his own journey as a sculptor.
    Died in 18/3/2018 
    Benshalom was represented by Christy contemporary art - London & Nahan Galleries
    New York & New Orlins.
    Benshalom’s sculptures are in private, public, and corporate collections throughout the
    world including Israel, Japan, England, and the United States.
