Shalom of Sefad [Shulem der Zeigermacher] Shalom of Safed lived for over seventeen years in his native town of Safed in the hills of the Galilee. There he worked as a watchmaker, stonemason and silversmith, during the 50's. Since then this self-taught artist has achieved an international reputation. Shalom is a native painter, but not a primitive one, he expresses a very elaborate way of thinking in his own way. While belonging to Hasidism, Shalom uses his artistic talents positively. 'I don't paint', he explains, 'to tell the story of the Bible in color and lines. It isn't the plastic representation that is forbidden, but the pictures that turn man's thoughts of G-d by challenging His creation.' His works have been exhibited in prominent museums and galleries in Europe and the United States, and are included in the collections of the Museums of Modern Art in Paris and New York, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Modern Museum in Stockholm and the Jewish Museum in New York
