Idan Lightman an artist born in 1985. My artworks primarily consist of oil paintings or pen and ink drawings featuring carefully chosen symbols that I draw from everyday life experiences and emotions. These symbols can be found on street corners, objects I have collected over the years, and in the inner workings of my mind.
My artworks explore the intersection of personal emotions and the external world. The two are seemingly separate sometimes but always coexist within the human experience. Through my use of symbolism, I aim to give form and meaning to ideas that language cannot fully express. I have participated in group exhibitions and community projects in the cities of Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem, Israel.
