Roy Nachum’s experimental paintings, installations and sculptures incorporate elements traditionally used in conceptual and interactive art. Nachum sees his work as an “eye opener”, a vehicle to allow viewers to confront their own existential apprehensions. Nachum starts a painting and leaves the viewer to complete it, he encourages people to touch and interact with the work, believing that human interaction keeps the work alive and breaks the barrier between the observer and “sacred object”. Imbued with its own evolution, the work takes form through a series of unstructured experiments. Nachum analyzes the endless possibilities of a material or method to introduce an additional dimension to the work.
Roy Nachum attended The Cooper Union in New York. Nachum’s work is included in many important public and private collections worldwide. He has been nominated for 2017’s 59th annual Grammy awards for best recording packaging for the art and art direction of Rihanna’s acclaimed album Anti.
