Elisheva Zabar is an Israeli sculptor, a member of The Israel Painters & Sculptors Association, living in the Galilee.
She has a degree in Economics & Management from the Technion in Haifa and for years she worked as a financial manager in high-tech company.
In 2000, she moved to the USA with her husband for two years. During this period she studied sculpture with the artist Mike Pavlovsky in Texas.
She found that sculpting in clay, brings her a lot of happiness, and since then she never stops creating.
The sculpted figurines of Elisheva constitute figurative images accomplished in a realistic approach. As a social artist, she sculpts children, women and men in multifarious poses. Her sculptures are bronze and stone castings, which are life-like, talking, laughing, and full of tenderness and human emotion.
"My inspiration comes mostly of my own personal human landscape. The forming process for each sculpture, takes me several months and at the end- I feel as if I am giving birth"
For over 12 years, Elisheva have participated in many exclusive and group exhibitions, and some of her works take place in private collections in Israel and in other countries around the world.
“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”
