About Matan Ben Cnaan : My main object is to deal with human situations, culture and human behavior. Most of my artwork deals with scene where rough and tough decision is about to be taken. this makes my work relevant. This was the reason I believe, for which I won the 1st prize of the BP award which is my major achievement so far.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Art is developing my own language so I can touch reality with it. The Painting is the sum of all conflicts, decisions, thought and feeling when i encounter the subject matter. The way I deconstruct reality and rebuild it again on my 2D surface.
