As Nachshon’s mother, I have made it my mission to make sure that Nachshon will be an “Artist to be Discovered” and that his art will live in good homes.
His works are unusual and are very particular to who he was. He had his own fantasy world, and his inspiration came from that. As he engraved in Latin on a table he found in the rubbish bin and then renovated: “In Somnis Veritas” (In dreams there is truth).
I designed and created this site in Nachshon’s memory. I hope you will enjoy his works, and as much as it was hard for me, I enjoyed working on it.
About Nachshon’s front page self-portrait. At the very top there are three figures – Jacqueline Kennedy, J.F. Kennedy and Malcolm X. On the left is me and on the right is Nachshon’s father. If you look closely you will see a baby in the womb (left bottom) – that is Nachshon. How strange that he should paint this 15 years ago, as towards the end of his life he returned to be a child. I held him until his last breath, he was at peace and truly loved by all around him. Take a good look at the painting – it is fascinating – and you will find a great deal of other things. Before Nachshon’s passed it was my birthday, I was hoping he would draw something for me. I put a pencil, eraser and sketch pad on his bed, but he said “my hand and my head are not working together, but when we go to my house you can chose anything that you want, and I know what you will chose”. No more was said and Nachshon passed 3 weeks later. I did go to his house after he passed to clean the fridge and found this portrait looking at me, and then I realized that this portrait was what he wanted me to have. It is now in the our dinning room and I can see Nachshon smiling at me everyday.
Only after Nachshon passed did I understand his works. He left me with 103 art books among them I found a book on HR Giger. This is where he got his inspiration for this self-portrait.
Nachshon loved to buy books – he had a library full of Stephen King books. But his real passion was to buy art books. Everywhere he would go he would look for book shops. Nachshon left me all his art books, so I have a lot to read!

May Nachshon rest in peace: he is truly missed by all that knew him.
Proudly Nachshon’s mother

ars longa vita brevis - Hippocrates Ars longa, vita brevis is a Latin translation of an aphorism coming originally from Greek. The Latin quote is often rendered in English as Art is long, life is short. The aphorism quotes the first two lines of the Aphorismi by the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates.
he was a great Artist !!!

יצירות נפלאות, ולפי סיפור חייו -אמן בכל רמ"ח איבריו ובכל נימי נפשו. יהי זכרו ברוך.
Nachshon, you have left a gift for us all to enjoy. Thank you and come back quickly to continue your beautiful journey!
Nachsohn was a great and talented multimedia artist. He got different expressions of his impressions. It is very sad, that you lost him.
All this "life" story is a secret I feel we didn't yet revealed. We expect and we long and wonder. Beeing an artist means for me beeing a kind of an investigator. I see nachchon's work as such. Very sad to loose your child. It does not matter how. The time without is the thing that matters. Lucky you got all these evidences ... hugs and condolences .
נפלא ! מדהים ! כנראה שאלוהים רוצה את הטובים ביותר על ידו. יישר כוח תמרה
Fantastic Works,Art is the best what ever we Give the World this Time and next Time for the Generation..
Never stop drawing. Art is a talent that needs to be nurtured and a craft that requires dedication. No matter how good you think you are there is always room for improvement remember to always be your own biggest critic.
