Biography

Israel Macedo is a young Brazilian artist who has in recent years begun to surprise collectors and art critics alike. Starting very young with painting and drawing, it was just a few years ago that he decided to use clay for modeling and begun to creat sculpture. With his professional use of bronze and metal castings, all his many talents started to bloom at once. His work impresses for the surreal and good humor found in his suprising creations. Full of details, his work shows both a friendliness and a subtle sense of comedy.

His series of Apples with or without an Ant Friend have been very successful in Brazil. His surname "Macedo" in Portuguese means the place where apple trees grow, another funny sign coming from Israel Macedo.
