Nimrod Messeg

Israel, 1970

Nimrod began his creative life at a very young age sculpting in his father’s workshop. He developed his personal and direct artisan method of sculpting iron. He uses ancient forging techniques, welding, power hammering, the plasma torch, etc. which enable him to create textures, shapes and effects that give his sculptures a unique style and appearance. These methods permit him to take this brutal metal and transform it into something beautiful, gentle, light, curvaceous… even soft.
“During the sculpting process the element of fire is my primary tool. This powerful force of creation provides me with a deep connection to nature and life itself. The light, heat and fire energy permit me to give birth to an entirely new entity. Each sculpture gradually takes on a life of its own and, using me as its tool, develops its own personality.”
