I'm a Hungarian (born), raised in Israel and living in New York City. Being part of three varying cultures confuses me at times, but also, I don’t feel awkward being in strange or new places. I behave differently. I approach people differently.
In my life I wish for mergence. Integration and not separation. Celebration of differences and different world views, I believe this has high importance in current times, where we are experiencing the emergence of a global community.
Author: Gelman, born in Hungary and raised in Israel, relocated to New York City in 2016, where
he continued his education in photography at ICP and the Pratt Institute. Originally a biochemist, he left science to pursue art- a language that allows him to navigate between the real and surreal.
The young artist fuses photography and digital painting, using image manipulation techniques to create unique dark and whimsical imagery. His technique enables visuals, previously only in his mind, to come together through dynamic postures and dark colors. Gelman aspires to tell an entire story with a single image.
