1972 · Israel
Breaking down the conceptualization of photography as a documentary art form, Israeli artist Ohad Matalon used his images as a means to challenge our expectations of the larger world around us.
Using the technique of digital manipulation, Matalon conveys intriguing intersections of art forms to encourage viewers of his work to explore the notions of identity as it relates to the isolated individual as well as society as a whole. In doing so, while at the same time exploring the exchange between media, Matalon offers a dynamic visual space that is sure to compel his audience.
Born in Israel in 1972, Matalon earned his BFA from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem in 2001 and subsequently completed his MFA at the same institution in 2007. Today, Matalon is based in Tel Aviv. His work has been featured in showcases around the globe, including The Tel Aviv Museum of Art; Podbielski Contemporary Gallery in Berlin, and the Contemporary Art Fair in London.
