Memy for website.jpeg

My art responds to the personal and the universal human experience.

I strive to transform these experiences into sculptures, both abstract and figurative, to capture motion and to express deep emotions. 

I utilize a range of mediums such as clay, resin, bronze, stone, natural and exotic wood, and I continue to explore and try out additional mediums and techniques.


Memy Ish-Shalom is a sculptor working in clay, bronze, resin, stone and wood.

Born in 1960 and raised in Jerusalem, Israel, he initially relocated to the USA in 2002, and later emigrated and settled in Newton, Massachusetts. In 2014, he ended a 30 years career in technology, thus allowing himself to focus entirely on making sculptures. 


Ish-Shalom’s works were exhibited in several museums and included in over 40 group exhibitions and one person shows. He received several awards. His works appear in public and private art collections. Two of his large granite sculptures are part of the permanent – “New Art Archeology” art collection - of the YV Art museum in Acton, MA. 


Ish-Shalom is represented by the Stewart Clifford Gallery in Provincetown, MA. He is a member of the Galatea Fine Art Gallery, SoWa, of the New England Sculptors Association, The National Sculpture Society and of the Newton Art Association.
