Yossi Govrin

Yossi Govrin is an artist with a diverse cultural background who has exhibited both nationally and internationally for his multimedia work including hemp and cement sculptures, bronze sculptures, paintings, photography and film.  

 

In the "Night Watch" series the sculptures relate directly to "human conductivity" and are made from hemp and cement; emphasizing the transient nature of humans and their environment, and a single mold reflecting our common origin. The added elements such as chandeliers, stones, and rope suggest the sense of individuality and uniqueness and resonate across cultural and national boundaries.

 

Yossi Govrin has been awarded numerous commissions, most notably a monument in honor of the late Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin (installed in Rabin Square, Tel Aviv City Hall, the site of the Prime Minster's assassination) and the bust of General James H. Doolittle, placed at the Santa Monica Museum of Aviation. Yossi Govrin is also the Director of Santa Monica Art Studios and Arena 1 Gallery.
