Calman Shemi.

Calman Shemi was born in Argentina in 1939 and graduated from the school of Sculpture and Ceramics in Mendoza, where he was a student of the noted sculpture Rudi Lehman. In 1961, Mr. Shemi settled in Israel and joined Kibbutz Carmia.

Shemi has acknowledged many influences in his art and his life; the dramatic colors of his childhood in Argentina, the sun-baked landscape of his home in Israel, the sensuous colorism of Matisse, the philosophies of his art teachers, and even the ritualistic symbols of the ancient past. His working method, which relies on the assistance of skilled artisans to execute much of the technical part of producing his works, affirms Shemi's strong commitment to the communal ethic rooted in his experience on the Kibbutz.

Shemi has worked intensively with wall sculptures laser-cut steel, his new field of expression. Over the last fifteen years, he has held more than seventy one-man-shows in the USA, Japan, Germany, Spain, Belgium and Israel. Calman Shemi has also created 1200 prints for cabins of the "Sensation", a carnival Cruise liner, large-scale paintings for the liner's suites and the public places. Shemi has also created paintings and sculptures for two other Carnival Cruise Lines the "Elevation" and the "Paradise". Calman Shemi has achieved an art expression that has received international acclaim and acceptance.
