Biography

Izzy Pludwinski was born in New York in 1954.

He moved to Israel in 1978 where he entered a local university, in the chemistry department.

Realizing his utter disinterest in the subject, Izzy plunged himself into the world of calligraphy.

As early as 1980, Izzy took up calligraphy professionally, attending different courses worldwide. He was and still is fully absorbed in calligraphy studies.

Many of Izzy’s works began traveling worldwide. Many exhibition organizers wanted to collaborate with him and see his work in the halls of their pavilions.

Besides participation in different exhibitions worldwide, Izzy had time to teach. His book, The Song of Songs, named after the name of a Bible book, was published in 2001.
