Israel

Born 1959 in South Africa, based in Israel. Self-taught artist with main interest in visual music art, and Synaesthesia in the arts. Resided in numerous game reserves for the past three decades.
Studied Fine Art at Unisa (South Africa) in 1991 and has continued drawing to music and exploring the relationship between sound and art in realism drawings as well as in abstract art.
The art revolves broadly around the synthesis between drawing, music and light in the fields of nature, science, and Synesthesia in the arts.
Emphasis is on progressive evolving conceptual art and visual Synesthetic experiences.
Currently working with drawings on paper, (pastel) new media art, animation and video art.
