Born 1972 in Tel-Aviv. Now lives and works in New York City. Ron Gilad's hybrid objects combine material wit with aesthetic play; they sit on the fat, delicious line between the abstract and the functional. Gilad is fascinated with philosophizing about the common objects we live with. His work, which varies from one-off to limited editions and production pieces, have no 'expiration date' and reside in both public and private collections worldwide.
