Itamar Gilboa, Founder of the Food Chain Project

Itamar Gilboa, 1973 (IL)

Itamar Gilboa is an innovative, multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in Amsterdam. He has always been inspired by the power of numbers and the influence of science. Gilboa works in diverse media: photography, video and sculpture. His work is diverse, yet consistent. His work is not only consistent because of his scientific approach, it also shares certain themes. Gilboa spent most of his artistic career researching factors that determine who he is – his cultural heritage, national identity and the changes he experienced migrating to the Netherlands, social networks and connections.

“I see my work as social sculptures; in the end I have a story to tell”
– Itamar Gilboa

Gilboa studied Visual Arts at the Avni Institute and Performing Arts at the Yoram Loewenstein Studio. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts obtained at the Rietveld Academy Amsterdam in 2005. Gilboa’s work has been exhibited worldwide at various locations such as TEDxEde, LAM Lisse, Museum Beelden aan Zee and Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Art Fair ExpoChicago and Red Gate Studios in Beijing.
