Shlomo Hauser graduated in 1991 from the NB Haifa School of Design with a degree in graphic design and visual communication. He pursued a career in advertising and graphic design and was a partner and VP Creative at one of Israel’s leading advertising agencies. In 2007 Hauser established an independent design and branding studio in his home in Nirit.
The experience that Shlomo amassed over the past three decades within the advertising and design sector has trained him to view his surroundings from an innovative angle. Not only does he experience simple imagery through his creative vision, but also mundane materials take on a new meaning as they become incorporated into the artist’s unique creations.
The imagery in Hauser’s paintings is not foreign: a well know intersection of Tel Aviv, a common street scene, a banal tree or a sidewalk. It is this commonality accentuated by foreign material (concrete, clay, metal, glass, plastic) that bestows upon the artist’s work a uniqueness not seen. This contrast between the two-dimensional painting and the three-dimensional clay, metal, etc. place the artist’s work in a class of its own.
Born in 1959 in Ramat Gan, Israel.
