Zigi
Ben-Haim
Gemälde AL-700

Artist: Zigi Ben-Haim


Ben-Haim combines both elements of painting and sculpture in his works, creating rich structures and fascinating colors. He uses material from industry to create biomorphic shapes. His building-block-like paintings are consistently endowed with images that are deeply personal and yet also are permeated with social importance. Private concerns, thoughts and parts of his experiences were captured in the flow of languages and images of widespread cultures.
