Kosso Eloul — Abstract Sculpture

«Kosso Eloul was an important Israeli/Canadian post-war sculptor. His polished, monumental geometric sculptures can be found in Canadian cities such as Toronto, Kingston, Montreal and Ottawa. Kosso Eloul also has sculptures located in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Tokyo, Jerusalem and Mexico City. He was born in Mourom, U.S.S.R and relocated to Tel-Aviv, Israel at the age of four. In 1938, he began his formal art training under Israeli sculptor Yitzhak Danziger. One year later, Kosso Eloul moved to the United States to study at both the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago School of Design. He attended lectures, workshops and classes by esteemed professors such as architect Frank Lloyd Wright and Bauhaus professor Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. Between the years of 1943 and 1948, Kosso Eloul served in WWII and the War of Independence in Palestine, before returning to sculpting.
In 1959 he represented Israel at the 29th Venice Biennale. After the First Sculpture Symposium in Yugoslavia in 1961, he set up a similar event in the Negev Desert in 1962; his lifelong involvement with international sculpture conferences began then. In the 1960's, Kosso Eloul began to develop his signature style of balanced, geometric metal sculptures, earning him commissions in Israel, Canada and the United States. In 1962, Kosso Eloul met Canadian artist Rita Letendre in Spoleto, Italy while working at the 5th Festival de Due Mondi, „Scultura Della Citta“. They married two years later, and, after living in Los Angeles for some time, permanently settled in Toronto in 1969.
Some of Kosso Eloul's best-known works include „Meeting Place,“ which sits at the intersection of Bloor and Church in Toronto, and „Eternal Flame“ at the Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, which is Israel's largest memorial to the Holocaust.
Kosso Eloul passed away from heart failure on November 8th, 1995 at the age of 75.
