Kosso Eloul

October 4, 2010

Mourom, Russia, 1920 – Toronto, Canada, 1995

Kosso Eloul is well known for his monumental aluminum sculptures of rectangles perched at angles that seem to defy gravity. He moved from Russia to Israel in 1924 and began to study sculpture in 1938 with Itzhak Danziger. Eloul continued his studies at the Art Institute of Chicago in the United States, where he lived until he was called back to Israel to serve in the army during the Independence War in 1948. Eloul joined the “New Horizons” art movement in Israel and continued to live and work in Israel until 1969 when he settled permanently in Toronto, Canada. Eloul´s sculptures usually have a minimalist sensibility but are still full of movement and momentum. He built many famous sculptures including “Ner Tamid” at Yad Va´shem. His works are included in the collections of many famous museums around the world.
