This is an original oil collage painting by Avi Ben-Simhon of Pomegranates. Pomegranates are one of the seven species with which the land of Israel was blessed with and Avi loved painting them. The medium is very thick paper that is almost like a board but a bit thinner and more flexible. Avi’s oil collage paintings use a very special technique that he developed. First he layers magazines and newspaper clippings and paints over that with oil and uses clear acrylic paint to bring up certain colors and pictures from the clippings. He does this at certain points of the painting to add new dimensions to the artwork.
The unframed size is 110×70 cm or 43×27 inches
Includes gallery Certificate of authenticity and Appraisal
