Beni Gassenbauer

Beni Gassenbauer, a well known landscape painter of Jerusalem, has always preferred watercolor because this medium enables him to depict the morning light, the deep dark shadow and the harsh mediterraneen sun, to show the contrasts of colors, space and details, and the transparency of air and water.

His subjects are always painted from reality, accentuating its poetical side and transmitting to the audience Beni's deep feelings of quietness and peace.

Beni exhibits in several well known galleries in Jerusalem. His paintings have been sold to collectors in different parts of the world, and he has presented numerous exhibitions in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, New York, Lausanne, Paris and Strasbourg.
