David Gerstein Studio

Art & Culture in Israel

David Gerstein is an Israeli artist who deals with the border between painting and sculpture. In the past, he was engaged in figurative painting and illustrated children’s books, and among other things, he won the Israel Museum of Illustration prize. He developed a style known as post-pop art, characterized by painting in bright colors on multi-layer metal cutouts, which can be defined as “wall sculptures.” His works were exhibited in museums in Israel and around the world, among others, in a comprehensive exhibition at the Israel Museum.
