Ruven Kuperman

Ruven Kuperman, painter and lecturer lives and works in his studio in Tel Aviv.
As a zealous user of texts and avid consumer multicultural folklore, Kuperman adopts the myriad options and in his unique way develops an eclectic series characterized by stylistic multiplicity. From the endless supply of information and unlimited options that he employs, he manages to differentiate himself, formulate a unique voice, and leave a distinct and personal mark. The painting he presents is virtuosic, resonating with artistic traditions in a range of mediums and materials, shifts between the public and the private, and draws inspiration from Eastern and Western history and myths.
Kuperman has received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York (1993). His solo shows include the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Wilfried Israel Museum in HaZore’a, Golconda Fine Art Gallery, Rosenfeld Gallery and Raw-Art Gallery in Tel Aviv, Kit Schulte Contemporary Art in Berlin, Janco Dada Museum in Ein Hod, and exhibitions in United States. Kuperman's work has been exhibited in group exhibitions worldwide, in venues such as the IV Odessa Biennale of Contemporary Art, Kit Schulte Contemporary Art in Berlin, Cain Schulte Contemporary Art in San Francisco, Salon d'art contemporain in Monaco, The Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Petach Tikva Museum of Art, Ashdod Museum of Art and more.
