Israeli artist Hen Songo graduated in architecture and design. He lives and works in Jerusalem. As a child, he used to often visit his father’s studio who was creating artworks of various kinds. This gave way to his passion for art and meticulous and precise crafts.
Hen Songo has developed a unique style characterized by his sculptural works that incorporate geometric architectural forms. His wall sculptures are based on three-dimensional thinking and complex theoretical engineering. In every work, the viewer can discern the dissolution of the image into three-dimensional geometric shapes.
His artistic approach is based on the understanding that the harmony of geometric shapes is central to human mind perception and to the creation of shapes and object dynamics.
His works examine the nature of geometric forms: are they the basic elements of reality or an illusion designed to mediate reality to the human mind?
Its works unveil a subtle but striking dynamic of shadow games based on light and on the observation angle.
