A Jerusalem-based multidisciplinary artist working mainly in bonsai, figurative sculpture, and mixed-media installations is being hosted by the National Arboretum Canberra, and the ANU School of Art and Design for a one-month residency.

Ofer Grunwald

Ofer Grunwald (37) is to produce new work for several exhibitions and art events in the Canberra area. His visit is supported by the Israeli Embassy in Canberra.

Ofer will be exhibiting a kinetic installation entitled ‘Inundation’ as part of the Art Not Apart 2018 festival will unveil a new work entitled ‘Heterotopium’as part of the National Arboretum Canberra’s Bonsai Week events, between March 19th and March 25th. In addition to exhibiting the work, Ofer will be giving daily floor talks about the installation and his artistic practice, as well as two in-depth presentations on March 23 and March 24.


In his original medium of bonsai, Ofer Grunwald pioneers its use as a platform for contemporary artistic expression. However, the search for broader, more profound statements has led him to develop a multi-disciplinary practice based on mixed-media pieces, where the strengths of one medium are used to overcome the restrictions of another. This has led to the development of a highly-acclaimed, uniquely evocative body of work.
