The Life We Left Behind
HOD was born in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1970 and was graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem in 1993. During his studies, he also attended the Cooper Union in New York. He has a wide range of production styles from video to painting and sculpture, and each expression shows a variety of approaches depending on the concept. Particularly in painting, he uses different styles from realism to materialistic abstract. Although HOD describes his activity as “telling the truth through beauty”, it is not an easy task to confront the concept of “beauty” that has been debated for centuries by generations of artists and philosophers. The variety of Hod’s works throughout his career makes this very clear. He has been actively exhibiting his works in galleries and museums in Israel, Europe, Asia, and the United States. He is currently based in New York, and his works are in the permanent collections of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, The Israel Museum and The Jewish Museum in New York, as well as in prominent private collections in various countries.
