David Gerstein

Considered a painter who expanded the boundaries of painting from the flat dimension (D2) to the three-dimensional (D3).
In the 1970s, he engaged in figurative painting from his private mythology (childhood, paintings of twins) and Israeli existence (Tel Aviv balconies, the Dead Sea). At the beginning of the 1980s, Gerstein moved to Petah Tikva.
He made multi-layered painting and sculpture mainly on wood cutouts in blatant colors, and as a result monumental sculptures were also created in the public space. In the mid-nineties, Gerstein began to produce sculptures in laser cut in limited series, that were enthusiastically received in the art world and were published in Israel and abroad.
In recent years, the artist returns to painting, while bringing with him the experience he gained in multi-layered sculpture, a painting that combines the figurative with the abstract and is enriched with fascinating textures and shapes.
Gerstein’s work is unique in its outstanding style in movement and intense color and can be distinguished immediately. The multi-layered metal works have an influence of pop style as well as graffiti art and naive art from many types.
His work is spread over a range of emotions that originate from an inward look at personal experiences and an ironic look at the urban environment (cyclists, pedestrians in urban density) and a return to nature (on the flora and fauna around us – birds, butterflies and gardens).
Over the years, his sculptures have been erected in Israel and around the world, with the most prominent of them being “The Spirit of Freedom” on the campus of Tel Aviv University, “Momentum” in the business center in Singapore and “Pluton” in the athletics stadium in Hsinchu in Taiwan (for which he won the first prize for urban sculpture).
In his quest to reach a wider audience, he created small and printed table and wall sculptures, and they are common and displayed in Israel and around the world in selected museum and design stores.
Studies: Bezalel, the Art Academy (Bozar) in Paris, “Arts Students League” in New York and a master’s degree at Saint Martin’s in London. Taught as a senior lecturer at Bezalel for 15 years.
He had solo exhibitions in museums (Israel Museum, Haifa, Herzliya, Brasilia, contemporary art in Beijing) and dozens of solo exhibitions in galleries around the world.
