Born in Jerusalem in 1961, Shlomo Harush studied Middle Eastern history at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Photography at Hadassa Community College in Jerusalem (1987-1990). After living and working in Milan from 1990 to 1997, Harush moved to New York City in 1998 where he has since worked in a studio in Brooklyn, creating multi-disciplined art: sculptures, photography, installations, paintings, and mixed media. Harush’s main focus in recent years has been the metamorphosis of forms and materials, achieving intriguing interrelations between art and industry while constantly challenging boundaries.
Exploring with industrial materials, including aluminum, bronze and steel, he blends everyday subjects and objects into his work, while manipulating them in order to turn away from the archetypal towards new and unexpected emblems. Shlomo Harush lives and works in New York City.
