Michael Elkayam - DGLM GalleryMichael Elkayam, born in Maroco in 1954, is the scion of an illustrious family of scholars and craftsmen renowned for their jewelry calligraphy and Copper relief inscriptions and ornaments.

Michael arrived in Israel with his family in 1956 and grew up in the Negev development town of Netivot. Michael attended the Beersheva Academy of Fine Arts and the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, specializing in graphic techniques.

Michael Elkayam's work employs both classic and contemporary artistic techniques, reflecting the timeless elements of Jewish symbolism.

His subjects focus on mysticism and other Jewish themes: ritual objects, amulets, blessings, images from the Bible, the synagogue and Jewish home, holiday etc. Elkayam uses various media for his creations, including oil on canvas, watercolor, chalk and especially traditional ink-on-parchment inscriptions. These liturgical citations, proverbs, benedictions and Biblical passages are exquisitely illuminated in bold, bright colors, manifesting a genuine synthesis of the old and the new, the classic art of Jewish calligraphy with most advanced principles of contemporary design and composition. Michael Elkayam is a member of the Israel association of artists and sculptors and has exhibited his works extensively in Israel and abroad.
