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

Il est difficile de comprendre ce que représente la perte d'un enfant....mais, je souhaite, tout comme vous, que son oeuvre, entière ou partielle, puisse aider d'autres personnes ...son monde artistique était vraiment très particulier..et même si ce style n'est pas celui que j'affectionne le plus, il est indéniable que Nachon aimait ce qu'il faisait et qu'il avait du talent...je vous souhaite de pouvoir trouver la paix, le repose et la consolation. Affectueusement, Maryvonne Frauchiger from Switzerland

Very nice and interesting works.
I love the works very much.
Lovely site Bless you
Surely, one cannot comprehend the loss of a child without experiencing it firsthand. I will not presume to do so and can only offer my deepest sympathy. I can well comprehend the loss of the talent Nachshon had, the beauty of his art and the loss of his creativity being cut short.
Thanks for sharing Nachshon work. It really worth to be known. תודה רבה

"כשתמות, משהו ממך בי ימות אתך. כי כולנו רקמה אנושית אחת חיה. ואם אחד מאתנו הולך מעמנו, משהו מת בנו, ומשה, נשאר אתו." (מוטי המר) נחשון האמן השאיר עבורנו – אלה שלא הכירו אותו - את חלקו ברקמה האנושית. האתר מזמן לצופה חוויה מטלטלת, צוהר לעולמו הייחודי של נחשון, ולמסע האינסופי של אהבת אם לבנה. "When you're gone, something inside me will die with you. For we all are made as one live human tapestry, and if someone is missing, if someone is leaving, something will die in us, and something forever will remain within." (Moti Hammer) Nachshon the Artist has given us – those who did not know him – his contribution to the human tapestry. This site invites us to a moving experience, a gate into Nachshon's unique inner world and a glance into the infinite journey of a mother's love for her son.
