Surrealism is one of my favorite art movements. I was always fascinated by the imagination of Dali and the way he depicted his vision. This piece is of one of Dali’s photoshoots taken at the beach, when, of course, Dali is acting as Dali.
AvRaam (Avraham) Cohen (b. 1968, Tel Aviv) attended university both in Holon, Israel and Brooklyn, NY for Industrial Design. While studying for his Masters at Pratt Institute, Cohen had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in Gaetano Pesce’s studio in NY, where he gained experience working with cold casting techniques and was exposed to a variety of materials.
In 1998, Cohen founded his design and engineering firm, Vertex Product Development Inc. in Great Neck, NY. After years of working with clients developing new products and innovations, his passion for creating art reignited. Cohen is combining his industrial design and manufacturing techniques with his earlier experiences of sculpting, casting, and free-form modeling into his artwork.
