Rosen (born in 1980) lives and works in Tel Aviv, is part of Artport's residency program in Tel Aviv (2015 -2016), a recipient of the Ministry of Culture and Sport’s Young Artist prize of 2015, a graduate of the Bezalel MFA program (2013) and receiver of the Osnat Moses young artist painting Prize for the year 2010.
His paintings that rely on a playful, childlike aesthetic presenting a repetitive imagery that deals in slapstick, dark humor and an excess of emotion. Limbs, faces, fruit and geometric shapes form together popy, expressive and misleading compositions, where the sweet, joyful appearance turns into a grotesque and terrifying one.
