Itzak Benshalom


Born in Hadera, Israel in 1945, Benshalom became a merchant marine at the age of fifteen.

This formative experience influenced his work as he traveled the world several times soaking in new images and textures.

Upon completing his military service in the Israeli Navy, Benshalom knew that he wanted to work with metal, a material that had always fascinated him.

In 1967, he and his brother-in-law set up a foundry specializing in the lost wax method of casting sculpture. For years he worked with other artists from Israel and from all over the world, helping them to realize their concepts.

Benshalom states that he can't say he even thought about it, but one day he began to work on an idea for his own sculpture, from then on he stopped doing other artist's work and began his own journey as a sculptor.

 About his work Benshalom states:

just love it. That's what I do."
