Shaul Kosman[Kvoshas] was born in Lithuania in Kaunas , in 1959. He graduated with MA degree the Vilnius Academy of Arts in 1983 in Vilnius .
Musician , architect and artist are the tree facets of Shaul's talented and creative personality. He was raised in the atmosphere of classic European architecture in the Baltic area. Since childhood, he played jazz and painted. This is probably why the main themes and ideas of his paintings are a combination and connection between music and architecture.
After immigration to the city Ashdod in Israel in 1997, his love for classic shapes and jazz music transferred into a deep understanding of the pulse of the modern city. His paintings are rich combination of acrylic and oil paint layered and textured using tools, spoons and utensils. His expansive use of vibrant and brilliant colors enhances the content of his work and draws the viewer into his world.
