Meet The Eccentric And Exciting Artist Elad Rosen

Picture of Deborah Moher
Updated: 24 April 2017
Elad Rosen has the type of exciting energy that you can feel immediately, and with a recent successful mini-golf exhibition at the Museum of Bat Yam behind him, Rosen has some more colorful treats coming up. Living and working in Tel Aviv, he is the winner of the 2010 Osnat Mozes painting award for young artists and his art has been featured in several one-man and group exhibitions. Currently he’s a resident at Tel Aviv’s Artport Center for Young Art. Alongside his studio work he is also an art teacher and engages in curatorial work. The Culture Trip learned a little more about Elad and his colorful dreams.

TCT: What advice would you give to someone who was trying to break into the art business?

Choose your battles and concentrate your energy on where it counts. Most importantly, never give up.
