Alon Kedem

First and foremost, Alon Kedem’s painting expresses his passion for painting. His joy of creating is apparent throughout his work; celebrations of his indulging in colors and images and toying with them. “The world is full of so many subjects to paint,” says Kedem during a conversation in the artist’s studio. He expresses feelings of fascination and passion which come to life through the language and colors of his canvases, reminiscent of a toy store or an ancient computer game. In his palette exists an amount of intentional, yet relevant artificiality, as if a plastic object illuminated by a LED lamp; in contrast, through his compositions is noticeable a glimpse of wonder bordering on the marvelous.
