Joel Amit was born in Jerusalem in Protected content . His interest in painting, sculpture and design was awakened at a young age. First he experimented with wood, metal and paper - the aim was to create large and new shapes from small “snippets”.

Amit studied architecture and design in Jerusalem. In doing so, he consolidated his talent for breaking down structures into lines and points and constructing new, impressive, sometimes oversized sculptures. The connection between nature and technology is the fundamental starting point of his installations. Viewed from a distance, we see a flow of colors that combine to form abstract shapes or even concrete objects or portraits.

Joel Amit finds the process of shaping metal – a heavy and cold material – into butterflies, fish, birds and feathers liberating. Joel Amit's installations create the impression of absolute lightness and weightlessness. In his work he is always looking for an additional dimension - a hidden layer and a challenge for the eye.

Amit is now not only a respected artist in his home country, but also internationally renowned and established and his works can be found in numerous private and public collections.
