Born in Argentina in 1939, Calman Shemi is a graduate of the ‘Ceramics and Sculpture School’ in Mendoza, where he studied under the Italian sculptor Libero Badii and the German sculptor Rudi Lehman. In 1961, he settled in Israel and joined a Kibbutz where he resided for twenty years. There he developed his individual sculpting technique working in wood and clay, while sharing in the commune’s duties and working in the fields and orchards of the Kibbutz.
Whilst during his early years as an artist Shemi was mostly engaged in sculpting, he later started working with reliefs, developing the “soft painting” technique. With this technique he first creates a painting, and then layers irregularly shaped pieces of fabrics of varying thicknesses onto it. The fabrics are of different textures and colors, resulting in vibrant compositions of explosive movement. He then proceeded to designing reliefs utilizing laser-cut steel, his new field of interest.
Shemi has created more than one thousand prints and paintings for the Carnival Cruise Liners ‘Sensation’, ‘Elevation’ and ‘Paradise’, decorating cabins, halls and passageways. Several of his large-scale fiberglass and polyester monuments are situated in different public buildings throughout the world.
Shemi has held more than seventy solo shows in the United States, Japan, Germany, Spain, Belgium and Israel; he has achieved an artistic expression that has received international acclaim and acceptance.
