Ben Rotman was born in Israel and lives in Tel Aviv. He has studied art in Israel and Europe.
Since his youth, Rotman has painted mainly in oils. Always open to new forms of expression, he first applied digital technology to his art in 1999. In his view, technique has moved beyond the brush and palette to encompass the tools and spectrum of the digital medium. This medium, he believes, provides the best way to express the fast-paced rhythm of his visions and imaginings.
Rotman applies the 21-century palette and brush of the digital medium to create works that offer a faint suggestion of image, within an abstract and a mystical tapestry. His applications of color are dynamic, rhythmic and stormy. He draws the inspiration for his work from everywhere ... scenic vistas, music, women dancing, men, urban landscape, politics and society.
We are living in a time when innovative computer technologies penetrate every area of life, including art. The digital art of Ben Rotman offers us a magnificent exploration of this convergence of art and technology.
