Halperin Ishayaho (Shaya), born in Israel, 1945.

After full military service, I was a member of a kibbutz for 7 years.
In my professional training, a mechanical engineer.
I worked in engineering design for about 28 years until I retired for early pension, in favor of practicing art.
As part of this experience I studied academic studies at Haifa University and I have a college degree in philosophy and Judaism studies.
I studied for about one year in a sculpture course with the sculptor Dalia Meiri.
From there I began a self-taught career in sculpture when the knowledge and technical experience, together with my studies in philosophy that enriched my critical thinking, formed the infrastructure to fascinating work that continues to this day.
To date I have exhibited in 11 exhibitions, some solo exhibitions and some group exhibitions. I participated in one sculpture festival in the Golan Heights, and my sculpture was presented there.
Two of my large sculptures were bought and located in the Alon Tavor industrial area in the Galilee.
I continue to sculpt almost daily in my workshop, and enjoy every moment of creation.
