Ben Rotman was
born in Israel and lives in Tel Aviv. He has studied art in Israel and Europe.
Since his youth, Rotman has painted mainly in oils. Always open to new forms
of expression, he first applied digital technology to his art in 1999. In
his view, technique has moved beyond the brush and palette to encompass the
tools and spectrum of the digital medium. This medium, he believes, provides
the best way to express the fast-paced rhythm of his visions and imaginings.
Rotman applies the 21-century palette and brush of the digital medium to create
works that offer a faint suggestion of image, within an abstract and a mystical
tapestry. His applications of color are dynamic, rhythmic
and stormy. He draws the inspiration for his work from everywhere ... scenic vistas, music, women dancing, men, urban landscape, politics and society. Prior to establishing Dagesh Advertising, Rotman worked as a graphic designer. Today, Dagesh has offices in Tel Aviv and Frankfurt, Germany. It is one of Israel's leading advertising agencies. Dagesh has earned prestigious awards at International Design Festivals in New York, and Israel. And Rotman, himself, garnered first place for two 2 posters created for
the Staatliche Museen-Berlin Fuer Architektur, Modebild
und Grafik-Design competition. We are living in a time when innovative computer technologies penetrate every area of life, including art. The digital art of Ben Rotman offers us a magnificent exploration of this convergence of art and technology.
