Menashe Mashiah is a self-taught sculptor working with steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze. Born and raised in Iraq, Menashe moved to Israel, where he learned to weld and fabricate metal while working with multiple commercial projects. The contrasts of nature and industry, light and shadow, chaos and order are themes found throughout Menashe's body of work. Pared-down organic shapes are formed out of the sheet and solid materials and welded together in harmonious accord. These contrasts, plus the relationships of patterns and boundaries, address Menashe’s desire to contain the chaos and push out the discord of an information-saturated culture. Since becoming a full-time artist in 2012, Menashe has developed his signature sculpture style while building his fine art career. Menashe’s sculpture is on display at highly-regarded fine art galleries, art fairs, and notable auction houses across North America, Asia, and Europe. His works can be found in many private, corporate, and public art collections. Menashe currently works and resides with his family in Tel Aviv, Israel.
