Born and raised in Jerusalem, Itamar, a.k.a FALUJA, is one of the leading artists in Israel today in the field of public space installations. He is renowned for his large scale reclaimed wood sculptures. He has exhibited in the Israel Museum, art and culture events in Israel, Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands, Central America and the U.S. He has art works in the offices of Google, Facebook, and Phillip Morris, among others. Itamar is an active member of the Midburn (Israeli Burning Man) community as a leading artist and mentor for art installation crews. Itamar has a B.F.A. from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. In Bezalel he participated in the '100 years to Bezalel' exhibition and won the Romi Shapiro prize for Judaica and several Excellency prizes. After graduating he moved to Tel Aviv, where he renovated a huge loft, creating a venue for multidisciplinary live art and music events. In the city he discovered street art and graffiti. While roaming the streets he started collecting scrap wood from the industrial area around his house and creating sculptures that he scattered around the city. Both of these art forms formed the path for his artistic career. Itamar now lives in the village of Olesh with his wife and newborn son. Together they founded a community that practices and explores yoga and meditation, permaculture gardening, and anthroposophical education.
