Michael Waizman was born in 1966 in the northern Israel town Migdal Ha’Emek, situated in Galilee.
From an early age, Michael has directed his energy and creative talent towards experimenting with various art forms. Many schools hours were spent sketching, drawing, and doodling rather than listening to his teachers.
During his twenties, Michael cultivated an interest in silk printing techniques and began incorporating these methods into his artistic process. The silk printing techniques, also known as screen printing or serigraphy, have been embraced by many major artists in the Pop Art world, such as American artists Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
The development of computerized graphics has provided many new and exciting opportunities for Michael, which he has embraced as part of his artistic form of expression. In his later years, the artist has began focusing on creating art pieces that incorporate iconic figures, symbols, and images from the past and present.
Michael’s distinctive artistic process integrates a multitude of methods: collage, silk printing, drawing, painting, and digital printing. This technique creates remarkable, rich, and striking images that immediately impress art lovers and aficionados.
For many years Michael created art primarily as a form of self-expression for himself and for people close to him. Only in recent years, after pressure from friends and the art-appreciative public, Michael began exhibiting his creation to the general public. His work can be found in a number of galleries and exhibitions around the world, including USA, Singapore, and Hong Kong to name a few.
