LIVES AND WORKS
Nissan Leviathan - Bio
Born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, Nissan Leviathan enjoyed a successful life-time career in the Israeli high-tech industry. At the same time, he was completely immersed in contemporary art in general and in pop art in particular, initially as a collector and later on as an artist. The triggering seeds for his passion for pop art are his joy of life as well as his fascination with light, colors and reflections.
An avid Francophile, he spent many of his adult years in France. During his stay in Paris, Nissan Leviathan got acquainted with many artists with whom he socialized and whose works he acquired. Among these are Erró, Monory, Adami, Combas, César, Klasen and Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne, to mention a few. During these years, the artist also fell in love with the art of glass blowing. He joined a Parisian glass blowing studio as a trainee and spent time with Dale Chihuly in Seattle to enhance his mastery of this ancient art.
In 1999, Nissan Leviathan returned to Israel where he completely devoted himself to creating art. For about fifteen years, he was engaged in sculpting monumental outdoor self-glowing sculptures, made of neon, glass and colored plexiglass. In recent years, thanks to his background with computers, the artist specialized in a selection of 2D and 3D software programs and evolved into being a productive digital artist.
