Yaacov Feldman is a contemporary artist, who works mostly in the realistic style. He believes, that “ordinary things inhabiting artist’s pictures, like a garlic bulb, a matchbox, a pair of scissors, can sometimes tell you no less than human characters about the mystery of life.” For example, his “Table spoon on a green background” presented in the Kings galllery: the artist here depicts the style and way of life of a person. Not less can be understood about the owner of “Roses in a glass” (a painting also exhibited in Kings gallery). Gray shades of the table and walls mark out four bright flowers. Moreover, blooming roses appear to disperse grayness from the room.
Feldman was born in Vitebsk and graduated from Vitebsk Art School in 1987. Later he studied at the Academy of Textile Design. Artist immigrated to Israel in 1991. Over time, his art has been exhibited in Paris, Jerusalem and Amsterdam.
Kings gallery collection
Kings gallery has an interesting collection of art by Yaacov Feldman. In particular, we offer several urban landscapes. “Tel Aviv Landscape” showes rapidly developing city. Old buldings in the forefront fade before scycrappers in the background. Sand colors make the painting soft and tranquil. Also, due to the light blue sky and slightly vague perspective, the artist manages to transmit a haze. On the contrary, Feldman showes “Old City View” of Jerusalem at sunset. Saturated colors, fiery roofs and distant infinite mountains make this landscape piercing. Furthermore, houses in the background seems to be melting in the hills.
The third urban painting is “Jerusalem Courtyards”. A beautiful desolate yard between old Jerusalem buildings with unique histories and moods invites viewers to enter.
Symbolic artwork “Tallit and Flag” depicts two main principles of Israel: Jewish culture and independent state. Two old warriors that passed together many battles, dramatic moments and tragedies.
Kings Gallery is a leading fine art gallery established in Jerusalem in 1995. We strive to collect and sell the highest quality historic and contemporary Israeli and International art. The gallery specializes primarily in artists from the early period of the 1920’s. Besides, Kings Gallery features leading up-and-coming young artists who will definitely be prominent names in the next few years.
