Idan Zareski was born in Haifa, Israel and he is a French citizen. Life took him through multiple countries, bearing witness to multiple races and cultures which are now a fundamental element in his work. His efforts led him to understand that his salvation had always been, literally, at his fingertips.
Idan has never attended Art School or any sort of anatomy course. His gift came to him as a need, which he understood he could no longer resist. “I don’t plan or organize, I don’t draw sketches. My raw emotions serve as the only guide. Ninety percent of my creations are shaped in less than an hour. When I work, I feel in absolute communion with a force greater than myself”. Idan shapes his creations out of clay, water and fire, to later set them in bronze. He is still amazed by the fact that emotions cannot only take shape, but be shared, without a word…in absolute silence.
These days, Idan is completely committed to his art, working out of Costa Rica, a small piece of paradise. His wife and three girls have become his most fervent admirers.
His work has been exhibited in France, Monaco, Switzerland, Italy, Costa Rica, Colombia, and the United States.
