b. 1983, Israel
Abraham Kritzman’s practice spans painting, printmaking, sculpture and installation art. After studying at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, he completed his Master’s Degree in Painting at the Royal College of Art, London in 2014. He lives between Israel and London and is currently a Tutor at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design.
Kritzman’s multidisciplinary work moulds the space and time of symbols and objects. Often influenced by mythical narratives and timeless human imagery, Kritzman’s technique removes the original references from his creations, forming unexpected trajectories and offering new meanings. His shows are regularly reviewed in international art publications and blogs.
Kritzman is the recipient of several awards and scholarships and has exhibited throughout Europe and Israel. His artworks exist in major foundations and institutions such as the Clore Duffield Foundation, London, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The artist was awarded The Minister of Culture Prize for Emerging Artists, The Herman Struk Prize for printmaking, the Clore-Bezalel Scholarship for MA at the Royal College of Art, The Aileen Cooper Prize, The Excellence Award for Achievements from Bezalel Department of Fine Art and The History and Theory Excellence Award from Bezalel Academy.
