Menashe Kadishman

Menashe Kadishman was an Israeli artist and sculptor whose works are exhibited internationally both publically and privately. He is widely known for his series of sheep paintings, of which he created thousands, as well as his minimalist metallic sculptures. Between the years of 1950 and 1960, he worked under the guidance of several prominent artists including Moshe Sternschuss, Rudi Lehmann, Anthony Caro, and Reg Butler, before opening his first one-man show in 1965 at the Grosvenor Gallery in London

 In 1978 he represented Israel in the 1978 Biennale with his trademark sheep paintings which were expressive in color and loose in style. Taking inspirations from his childhood on a farm, his sheep are animal manifestations of people he came across during his lifetime. Poetically merging man and nature, his art is both industrial and organic, powerfully emotive and simple. His style mirrors his belief that “art grows from feelings and not rational calculations alone.”

His works can be found at Tate, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) as well as exhbitis including  Dan Gallery, Tel Aviv, Corridor Contemporary, Tel-Aviv , THE FIFTH AVENUE ZOO, Nohra Haime Gallery, New York
