New Zealand painter and sculptor Gidon Bing works primarily in plywood sculptures out of his boat shed studio in Auckland's Hobson Bay. Using techniques learned from master craftsmen, Gidon also operates a ceramics studio, where he creates beautiful, functional objects perfect for everyday use.
As a teenager, Gidon spent time in Israel, in the artsy village of Ein Hod and then spent time studying anthropology, archaeology and religious studies at university. He learned traditional furniture making techniques during his time spent in ateliers in the Middle East and Europe, where he hand crafted furniture alongside classically trained craftsmen.
