Eco conscious artist Galia Gluckman has recently returned to South Africa after living and working New York for the last ten years. She also has a new collection out entitled Emerging made from recyclable materials turned into mosaic collages.
Galia has exhibited in numerous exhibitions in New York, featured in many international design publications and has sold pieces to all corners of the globe. In 2009, Galia was awarded best overall green piece at the World Art Expo in New York City. She was commended for her creative use of recycled papers and low-impact materials in a contemporary collage. As part of the beautification project for the City of Great Neck, NY, Galia was commissioned to design an original artwork design for an outside train station project spanning 7.3 meters wide by 1.2 meters.
She now works out of her studio in Constantia, Cape Town, at the home she shares with her husband and two children. She plans to exhibit in both Cape Town and Johannesburg in the near future.
