Chen Winkler, sculptor, painter, photographer, writer, creator and inventor.
Ninth Generation in Israel, serves as colonel in the IDF military reserves. Zionist.
His works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Israel and around the world and shown in museums, in public gardens and buildings. In addition he has created dozens of monuments and environmental sculptures.
Chen worked and created in the marble factory which his family has owned for three generations. His own sculptures express the technical sense and the use of methods, advanced technologies in all kinds of raw materials: stones, glass metals and more. Chen's professional knowledge is extensive.
Chen creates exterior sculptures, monuments, and sculptures for home as well as marble and stone reliefs. His work translates a visual line of characters into flowing, dynamic, and harmonious forms characterized by touching the boundaries of minimalism. Reducing detail and color, combined with curves in flat surfaces, he creates codes that are readily identified.
His sculptures express the ability of re-creation to a different living space, analogous to the human movement around them. A person who is not bound by conventions, is not afraid to touch different materials and is not limited to certain execution methods and techniques as his works.
Chen designs, sculpts and builds monuments and statues in stone, marble and other materials. Most of the materials he uses are natural materials originated in Israel. He has built dozens of monuments and hundreds of artistic tombstones across the country for individuals and private institutions, communities, and the Ministry of Defense.
