Benny Katz

Born in Sao-Paulo, Brazil (1973), Benny Katz conducts a search which intertwines between reality and biographical dimensions by using simple, light and accessible materials and merging painting with three dimensional objects in an attempt to penetrate the viewer’s space. His quest moves beyond social or political issues and focusses on innocence, simplicity and lost childhood in a cynical, post-modern industrial world. His works involve surrealism and dark humor by taking familiar themes and giving them dark, kinky, additional values. He studied visual arts at the Technion in Tel Aviv. His works have been exhibited in New York, Brazil, Israel and Italy — where he was awarded a special prize for painting at the Arte Laguna Prize. After his personal exhibit at Giudecca 795, with which he collaborates at present, he exhibited his works at the Biennal de Cerveira, Portugal.

La contraddizione tra una caffetteria, punto di ritrovo tranquillo e piacevole, e la realtà violenta in Israele, che disperde in frammenti questa pace urbana: la fragilità della vita.

The contradiction between a coffeehouse, as a tranquil, pleasant meeting point and the violent Israeli reality of terrorism, shattering this urban tranquility into smithereens: the fragility of life.
