Solomon Souza - Graffiti Artist

Mona Henoch

INSIDE SOLOMON'S STUDIO

Come enjoy an insider’s tour of Safed with artist Solomon Souza! Born and raised in London, and now living in Israel, splitting his time between Safed and Jerusalem. Solomon has no formal training but it is clear from his work he is a gifted artist. Art runs in his blood…his grandfather, Frances Newton Souza (1924-2002), called by some the “Indian Picasso”, is considered the father of modern Indian art. 
Solomon uses any medium that makes a mark, from spray paint to crayons. The city of Safed is covered in his fabulous street art, many having religious themes which fit in nicely with the atmosphere of the city.  In 2015, Souza started an ongoing graffiti project in the Mahane Yehuda market in Jerusalem, which has transformed it into a pop-up art gallery. To date, Souza has painted over 180 shuttered metal doors with iconic figures like Albert Einstein, Golda Meir, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and the Biblical prophet Moses. Each shutter is inspired by a heroic person or a Biblical theme conceived from a multinational, global perspective.  Keep your eye on this eye on this artist!  He will only get better and better!!

JAFFA PORT IS FULL OF GREAT THINGS TO DO, SEE AND EAT.  AND THIS FANTASTIC ART EXHIBIT WAS NO EXCEPTION. I GOT A PERSONAL BY THE ARTIST HERSELF, IRIT SEGAL-ISRAELI.

SEGAL-ISRAELI USES METAL AS THE MAJOR COMPONENT OF HER WORK AND SHE MELTS, SOFTENS AND CUTS THE METAL TO GIVE IT THE SHAPE SHE NEEDS TO REFLECT HER INSPIRATION OF NATURE, HISTORY, PREHISTORY, MYTHOLOGY, GEOGRAPHY, LITERATURE, POETRY AND SELF-SCRUTINY.

THE EXHIBIT “WANDERING” WAS NOT A RETROSPECTIVE PER SE, YET IT EMBODIED THE ESSENCE OF SEGAL-ISRAELI’S WORK SINCE THE ONSET OF HER CAREER AS A SCULPTOR. GORGEOUS AND MOVING PIECES AND WELL WORTH KEEPING AN EYE OUT FOR HER NEXT EXHIBIT!

THE MEMORIAL CONSISTS OF TWO ELEMENTS THAT SYMBOLIZE THE TRANSITION FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT REFLECTING THE RUSSIAN MILITARY VICTORY TO STOP THE HOLOCAUST OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, FOLLOWED BY THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE JEWISH STATE IN ISRAEL.
