Art Collection

Creativity, innovation, and a unique perspective on the world. These are values we champion across our legal practices, and which are also expressed within the magnificent art collection that graces the walls of the Shibolet offices. 

Shibolet is proud to support contemporary Israeli artists as a key facet of our broad commitment to corporate social responsibility. This art collection, which includes dozens of incredible artworks by leading painters and photographers, can be viewed throughout our public areas, from meeting rooms to hallways. Each piece has been handpicked for its beauty and originality, as we aim to give our clients, staff, and visitors a truly meaningful cultural experience. 

We are occasionally asked to lend certain artworks from the collection to prominent museums and galleries, such as Raffi Lavie’s exhibition representing Israel at the 53rd Venice Biennale, and both the Alex Kremer and Tal Matsliach exhibitions at the Tel Aviv Museum.

Curators: Richard M. Roberts and Ofer Shapira.

Asaf Ben Zvi

Michal Na'aman

Khen Shaish

Chen Shaish explores her place of origin on canvas, showcasing nostalgia for a world and a life which is not her own, and one she cannot leave. Culturally rich and void of actual existence. Her wandering lifestyle influenced her art with a sense of urgency and intimacy.

Gil Marco Shani

Gil Marco Shani is a multimedia artist, creating paintings, sketches, installations, sculptures, artist books and more. His creations exist between two polar opposites - the picturesque, two-dimensional paintings and the three dimensional installations. Together they construct the artist’s platform as hypnotizing and threatening, beautiful and painful, sentimental and cold. 

Maya Cohen-Levy

Maya Cohen-Levy’s work ranges between painting, photography, sculpting and video-art. Her creative periods can be categorized into different eras and styles: collages; paintings - utilizing mythological and archetypal motifs, a series of plant imagery such as sunflowers, chopped wood bits, etc. And using urban and architectural symbols, by using edited photography.

David Reeb

David Reeb’s paintings make use of imagery from the political Israeli experience. He utilizes photos taken from newspaper and television which he adapts into acrylic paintings, while using a powerful color palette and flat painting style. He is a political artist who often comments on the Israeli Palestinian conflict through his art which are often inspired by photographs.

Raffe Lavie

Raffe Lavie has his own sign language, carrying a personal and general burden, reflecting his emotional and rational world. The images are showcased in paintings, words, photographs and pastings, in sketches and drawings. He uses “unmatched” elements. Over the years his work has focused on bringing the simple and banal to the front of the stage and emphasizing the esthetic value of the mundane.

Gabriel Klasmer

Gabriel Klasmer was occupied with artistic activities that had a political flair, incorporating artistic and political concepts, in the 70’s. In the 80’she worked with figure drawing on paper. Later he created fantastic scenery images on canvas, accompanied by texts of political nature. In the 90s he developed a mechanical method of painting.

Ido Bar El

Ido Bar El’s work is a commitment to painting and the exploration of its existence in the current field of art. All of his materials and many of his creations have an ongoing nod to the legacy of European, American and Israeli modernism. Through different imagery, Bar El produces objects which function as capsules of visual-sensual pleasure with personal, historical and everyday political flashes.

Leonid Balaklav

Leonid Balaklav expressive, self-reflection painting style, is impactful with a great sensitivity to light and its effects. At the same time, he creates modest sketches, full of expression, in charcoal and oils, of trivial images of the street. Since immigrating to Israel, he continues to paint in his figurative language, using an expressive paintbrush and a rare sensitivity to light.

Tsibi Geva

Tsibi Geva is primarily a political artist whose art focuses on the contrast within the Israeli-Palestinian existence. His art and environmental installations reference a specific environment, as a symbolic act of protest. His works make use of symbols that have double meanings, both Middle Eastern and Western.

Maya Gold

Maya Gold succeeds in forming a personal and original artistic language using traditional techniques. Her paintings, which appear to be realistic, are characterized by a hidden, surreal dimension after prolonged reflection on the pieces. These realistic images, distorted in the way they are featured, disrupt the painting and raise interesting questions of meaning and method and the viewer’s role.

Mosh Kashi

Mosh Kashi’s precise works derive from nature and his interpretation of art theory concepts which create a deep and challenging viewing experience. His paintings are created as a series although each painting stands on its own. The entire series offers a slow, exploratory development of the subject. This work method allows deep analysis and precision.
