David Gerstein is an outstanding Israeli as well as internationally renowned artist.
He creates universal, colorful and layered imagery of still-life compositions, urban landscapes and human activity. His versatile body of work consists among others of indoor metal wall sculptures formed as multi-layered cut-outs, outdoor works, paintings and sculptures.
His monumental statues adorn cities in many countries. Moreover Gerstein participated in numerous city projects, decorating the interior/exterior of buildings. His art works have been included in major museums- and private collections in Israel and abroad. The range of circumstances, both artistic and popular, under which the public has been exposed to Gerstein's work in the past years, i.e. the statues and cut-outs, as well as his overflowing presence, speak of the community's deep need for this type of creation.
His art is about goodhearted objects that convey a certain irony and humor, which grows more and more convoluted and yet for him, at least, remains simple and innocent, as it was during his childhood in the 50's.
