(Israel 1994 -)


A young rising star has been found at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel. Benda was born
in Jerusalem in 1994, and since a young age he has been painting, sculpting and creating. After his
military service in Israel, Benda worked as an assistant for the master 3D artist - Joel Amit, whose laser
cut metal sculptures are individual masterpieces.
Meanwhile Benda's passion for materials and creating brought him to start his studies of Industrial
Design at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. During that time, Benda found interests in a
new modern pop art style which presents challenge to the traditions of fine art by reinventing well
known imagery from popular and mass culture.
Benda is a contemporary pop Art 3D artist. His technique of merging layers of metal together is an
absolute thrill to the eyes. Each of Benda’s pieces is unique, formed by 10 to 20 layers of metal parts.
The final composition is a highly constructed piece created by Benda’s 3D level technique.
He manages to foster creative thinking and new innovative ideas, taking iconic subjects and bringing
them to life in the form of imaginative metal sculptures. For the last several years, Benda has
dedicated himself to developing his 3D level technique, and succeeds in putting together outstanding,
professional works.
He wants to create a new point of view for today’s new art society. By fusing colorful metal pieces
through hidden layers, he's challenging the ey of humanity. Benda seeks to take pop art beyond an
artistic style to a life style.
