Shahar Klein Artist Bio:

Born 1956, living in Costa Rica since 2010. Always loved art but in my 20s studied industrial design. During my 30 years of intensive design work I have neglected the active side of art. Art skills were part of my workday and left no time for art making. Moving to Costa Rica in 2010 was the opportunity that waited. Since then I'm mostly looking around, painting and shooting photographs. Here is something about my work, by Adi Gishes, curator: In the series "Los Caribenos" for example, Klein as an observer from afar tries to capture the spirit of the place and the people in general. In most cases the faces are unrecognizable, in the shade or looking the other direction. The viewer is left only to imagine the sounds of the waves or the playing children. Klein directs the viewer to share his own experience, as if being there, inside the scenes with nothing else besides the images he had chosen to leave on the canvas. All concise into the ambiance of tranquility and joy of life. Klein is not a tourist but an explorer, curious and anxious to study and know his new environment before he becomes an integral part of it himself. Furthermore, at the same time he wishes to share his impressions through his paintings. He wishes to forward the essence of this area of Costa Rica as captured in his point of view, so to speak. Nevertheless, while he emphasizes his chosen subjects, he tries to keep his objectivity and leaves any interpretation to the viewer. Shahar Klein's artistic language is clear and simple and thus his works are "friendly" to both local and foreign viewers. Adi Gishes (Fine Art Adviser and Appraiser, Curator)
