Roy NACHUM

Roy Nachum attended The Cooper Union school in New York, USA. He currently lives and works between New York, USA and Italy.

His experimental paintings, installations and sculptures incorporate elements traditionally used in conceptual and interactive art. His large-scale paintings often include Braille text in relief, used to create artwork that is witty, compelling and autonomous. He views his works as “eye openers”, vehicles through which the viewer is encouraged to confront their own existential apprehensions. The artist starts a painting before leaving the viewer free to complete it. Indeed, Nachum encourages people to touch and interact with the work, believing that it is through human interaction that the work lives, the encounter is what breaks down the barrier between spectator and ‘sacred object’.

In 2017, he was nominated for a Grammy Award for best recording packaging for his art and art direction of Rihanna’s acclaimed album ‘Anti’. Nachum’s work is included in many public and private collections worldwide.
