Michael Waizman was born in 1966 in a northern Israel town of Migdal Ha’Emek, situated in Galilee.
From an early age Michael directed his energy and creative talent towards experimenting with various art forms. Schools hours were spent on sketching, drawing and simple doodling rather than listening to his teachers.
During his twenties, in addition to working as an artist, Michael found a business interest in silk printing techniques which were intended for industrial and commercial purposes. The silk printing techniques, also known as screen printing or serigraphy, have been embraced by many of the major Pop-Art artists such as American artists Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and others.
With the years, the development of computerized graphics hasprovided many new and exciting opportunities for Michael, opportunities which he embraced as part of his artistic language and artistic form of expression.
In later years the artist has been focusing on creating art pieces incorporating iconic figures and images from the past and present.
Michael’s distinctive technique is built upon a number of phases: 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 around the world and international exhibitions in USA, Singapore, Hong Kong and other countries.
