Beautiful Art of Israel

Israel has always been known for its plethora of artists and unique styles of artistry. It's not surprising that a country filled with so much history and beauty produces such exquisite craftsmanship. Following are just a few of the incredibly talented artists based in Israel.

Kalman Safrut

First and foremost a Sofer, or scribe, Kalman creates beautiful designs out of Hebrew letters. The foundation of his art is traditional Jewish calligraphy, and from there he gets creative: shapes and colors prevail. Kalman's purpose is to show the world the power of the Alef Bet, the Hebrew letters.
Keep up with Kalman's art and creative workshops on his Facebook page.


Jason Kipp recently finished his MA in design from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Tel Aviv. His line of 3D printed creations is called Blue Print Rings. The rings depict various city landscapes from around the world. A tribute to the different cultures and their architecture, Jason has so far produced tiny little versions of Istanbul, Berlin, Jerusalem, Tzfat, Chicago, Minneapolis, and New York.
