Yizhak Elyashiv

b. 1964

Born in Jerusalem; lives in Providence, Rhode Island.

Elyashiv is particularly known for his Handful of Grains Map Series, in which he created the random images by tossing grains of rice onto the printing plates, as he did for his Untitled Tamarind lithograph.  His interest in natural forms is reflected in the beautiful, spare Nature Studies I, II and III.
