Honorable Mention Artist: Alic Trossman
Cities have been the central focus of my work for the last ten years. Fascinated by the different spatial functions of streets and other public places, I followed routines and paths of urban life, seeking to create a dialogue with the urban environment, while aspiring to capture individuals in their surroundings and unveil the way they relate to each other.
Alic Trossman was born in 1972 and raised in L’viv, Ukraine until the early 90’s when his family immigrated to Israel. He has been living and working in New York since 2010. He studied art and photography at Camera Obscura School of Arts, and continued at the Kalisher’s Artist Training Program in Tel Aviv. He was also a recipient of the America-Israel Foundation Award (2002).
His work have been featured in solo shows in venues such as the Museum of Ramat Gan, Israel (2006) and the Vienna Biennale, Austria (2008), as well as in group exhibitions in various galleries in Tel-Aviv and New York City.
