Mati Elmaliach lives and works in Tel-Aviv,
Elmaliach’s art stems from his life as an Israeli artist and his personal biography – introspecting personal memory versus the collective memory in the society in which he lives.
Emerging from the field of photography, he chooses not to create new images, but rather, bases his work on existing photos. Thus, in place of adding images to the collective repository, he creates new images from those that already exist.
