About

Sam Rahamin

Sam

Rachamin was born in Israel in 1986 to a mixed Israeli American couple.

he grew up in Jerusalem and Motza Illit, a village on the outskirts of Jerusalem, notorious for its beautiful landscape and home to the well-known painter Anna Ticho.

Sam became involved in the creation of sculptures and art from a young age, at first he studied from a local (Motza Illit) artist sculptor and friend. After being accepted to the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, Sam renounced registering, as he was searching for a more artistically naturalistic and figurative oriented training to develop in, and so he joined the master-class at the Jerusalem Studio School (JSS).

Since 2015, Sam had been regularly visiting Paris in order to copy and learn auto-didactically from old masters and explore their techniques.

in 2017 Sam moved to Paris.
