Art Brokerage: Shlomi Haziza Israeli Artist: b. 1969. Shlomi Haziza was born in Haifa, Israel into an artistic family and has been making art since he was 15. He started by selling whimsical paintings on sea stones. His Rock Art became wildly popular and Haziza moved up in the world. He began designing clubs and restaurants, giving them an atmosphere consistent with his vivid art. He took his work to showcases all over the world. When his travels brought him to the United States, the government granted him permanent residency because he exhibited what they deemed "extraordinary ability."nnOnce established in Los Angeles, he founded H.Studio in 1991. Since then, H.Studio has become a veritable mecca for L.A.-based modern artists. It serves as a workspace for more than 75 artists with origins spanning the globe. "We do everything here," said Haziza, who prides himself on creations that "make it hard for other people to do." Indeed, his unique combination of design and technique ensures that his work will not be easily duplicated. He loves newness, and it shows in the nonconformist modernity of his work. Ironically, while he loves to create the new and the fresh, Haziza defines the essence of beauty as timeless and eternal. To him, "anything that will stay after you leave this world" is beautiful. nn"Jewelry you hang on your wall" is how Haziza characterizes a freeform sculpture, which is bent to create a three-dimensional look with lots of movement. His inspiration, as can be inferred from his peace-loving mantras as well as the names of his paintings—Unity, Land of Love, Human Life, Connecting—is the splendor of life and love. He seems exhilarated by the beauty of the world, and translates this exuberance onto the canvas and into sculpture. Smoothing oil onto canvas, bending metals in an oven, casting materials from liquid—become actions of peace, actions of love…physical expressions of a desire to make others feel happy, uplifted, touched. Then there's Haziza's desire to infuse the world with his own uniqueness. "I want to make what's not already out there-what's different." Contorted acrylic, stainless steel, brushed aluminum, and self-concocted materials come together harmoniously in expressive sculpture. In his paintings, vivid, streaky brushstrokes, and infusions of dazzling hues converge with undertones of soothing spirituality. Listings wanted.Read More +
