Eran Shakin was born in Tel Aviv in 1962, Painter and sculptor, married to Maya, the daughter of the famous artist Menashe Kadishman.
Eran Shakin doesn't want the audience to look for the process he goes through in his paintings as an artist. He is interested that the observer would look at his work independently and not as part of the larger process. The importance to him is to create sharpening and condensed by the radicalization of "image" in any way that you get the attention of the observer.
Shakin liked various materials since he was a child. The technique in his work, he emphasizes, are a means, not an end. The technique he chooses to use, allows him to reach the most desired result for him. He uses different techniques and by working of ways, he reaches the result that is actually a surprise even to himself.
His works are part of many important collections in Israel and around the world.
