Artist: Osvaldo Romberg

Osvaldo Romberg taught at Jerusalem's Bezalel Academy in the 1970s, chairing its Fine Arts department, creating a body of work, and leaving his imprint on the development of Conceptual art in Israel. Romberg strives to reach the fundamentals of the artistic act by breaking it down into essential components, i.e., forms and colors. His intellectual engagement is accompanied by a strong emotional and even religious dimension. Rombergs' spirit, buoyed by imagination and creative energy, hovers over the scientific investigations, architectural sketches, and theoretical texts that are incorporated into his artworks.
