    Announcement    My grandmother's house was a magical kingdom of beautiful objects. She taught me to be grateful of the past in order to appreciate the present.
    When she passed away, I started to collect objects of my own.
    I found myself wandering in flea markets around the world. The huge variety out there fascinated me, gradually teaching me how objects could unite complexity and simplicity all together.

    Each object has been living many lives - used, sold, fixed, or given away. Each object has a story to tell, a past history of life, and a future to be lived.

    My collections contains kitchen objects, street signs, books, magazines, craft tools, commercial signs, sport objects, toys, and even military artifacts.

    To keep their eternity, I am preserving them sealed on display, covered by glass, stabilized by iron, and framed in wood. Impossible to touch, I am dreaming they will live forever.

    How it all started?

    I spent most of my childhood at my grandmother's house that was full of beautiful objects. Except feeding me, and reading me stories before bed, she taught me how to gratitude the past in order to appreciate the present.

    When my grandmother passed away I started to collect old collectibles.
    At first I selected a few of hers, and in time I found myself wondering around in flea markets in Israel and around the world, and from all of the huge verity, choosing in punctiliously the objects unites complexity and simplicity all together.

    Each object has been through a few lifetimes. it has been sold, fixed or given by its old owners. Each object has a story to tell, and every story has a part in the history of us all.

    The collections contains kitchen objects, street signs, books, magazines, commercial adds, work tools, medicine tools, toys, army objects and objects from old Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, etc.

    In order to cancel their expiry date, to preserve them and keep history long going, I put them seald on display - covered by glass, stabilized by iron and framed in wood. Impossible to touch or make any change.

    By attaching functional objects to canvas and framing them I create unique pop-art works.

    Old hammer, torn tennis ball and a rusty drill bit are not assemblers in an expected art piece. In my opinion, they sure are!

    Pop-art culture stood out for its shiny colors, glitters and the usage in functional objects as fine art. The message was simple – the functional is also beautiful, and in the words of the great Andy Warhol, “All Is Pretty”

    In addition, I use Photoshop to make colorful digitization prints of the collectibles displays, in purpose to give them a validity in modern life.

    Each print is unique in its colors and patterns. The digitization prints are made in purpose to show another point of view for the pop-art culture state of mind, one that is lighter and super modern.

    Using my artworks, these collectibles have arrived to their last lifetime, and in their new role as an art hanging on the wall getting the honor they deserve.
