I am David Grushko, a basketry artist who lives in Ofra, Israel (near Jerusalem). I was born in Paris and raised in the spirit of French æsthetics. At the age of 18, I began studying electronics, but I soon switched to homeopathy, that I still practice in parallel to my art career. I learned basketry techniques from Hertzel Auster, one of Israel’s foremost basket weavers.
I believe that art is a superior tool for connecting the spiritual and material worlds and for revealing my innermost self. As an artist, I feel that the various facets that comprise my sense of self are displayed and expressed in my works.Read More
