Product Description

Original mixed media painting by famed Israeli artist, Ave Ben-Simhon. This is one of his earlier pieces from a collection that is very hard to come by.

When he came of age, Ben-Simhon served in the Israeli army and later joined a group of friends to establish Kibbutz Eyal. Along with its religious significance in his life, Israel was also the location of Ben-Simhon’s extensive art education. In 1986, he studied at the acclaimed Avni Art Institute, followed by three years of immersion into the world of contemporary art at the acclaimed Kallisher Institute. Ben-Simhon soon became fascinated by the Fauvist and Cubist painters of the 19th Century, and the influence of this style is readily apparent in his paintings.

The Fauves were inspired by the later impressionist works of Paul Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh, artists who pushed the boundaries with their bold color choices and simplified design. Such design elements are a hallmark of Ben-Simhon’s paintings that also exhibit the intense colors characteristic of the Fauves, whose aim was to express emotion through color choice. As with Cubist works, a feature of this Israeli artist is to break up objects, analyze them, and re-assemble them in an abstract form, thereby depicting them in a greater context. Ben-Simhon views his work as a marriage of beauty and complication dominated by round lines, colorful images and, above all, a feeling of happiness.
