Benny Katz (b. 1973, Sao Paolo, Brazil) emigrated to Israel in 1978. After graduating from the graphic design program at Technion in Tel Aviv in 2000, Katz pursued a career in commercial design. At the same time, he developed a practice in conceptual art working in sculpture and painting. In 2015, Katz took a more light hearted approach to his sculptural works. Through minimalist forms in primary colours, he captures the playful essence of his subjects. These new sculptures that align with the innovative aesthetic of Alexander Calder, are theatrical extensions in space.
Katz’s artworks are held in many private collections
