Born in Ukraine, Gerber immigrated to Israel in 1991. He graduated from the “Art Institute of Krivoy Rog” with honors in 1990. His works, which are thick in texture and color are visually peaceful, natural and tranquil. He finds his inspiration from the places he visits as well as the fauvism art movement made famous in the early 20th century.
In his own words, Gerber believes that “Capturing Beautiful scenery, nature and flowers always gives me new thoughts and ideas for a new painting. I just stand there, quickly drawing a small sketch and then run to the studio and try to recreate it in colors and emotions”. In other words, Gerber expresses emotion through bold color and simplified design. Gerber lives in Israel and his work can be found in many private collections in Israel, Europe, and the United States.
