Nadav Weissman, born 1969, exhibited solo shows and participated in distinct worldly exhibitions, established himself in the recent years as a young, interesting and innovating artist. His work is imaginative, original and unique in all substance, visual and stylistic aspects. Weissman’s work creates a seduction that acts as a trap and uses visual images of humor and playfulness as interpretation to the world. Composed of paintings, sculptures and objects, Nadav Weissman’s installations reflect his relentless quest for Home. Houses built of bones, carried on ship’s deck, the look out to space is bright and hopeful but the house always fails.
