Daniel is an Artist from Ein Karem, Jerusalem. His art catches the world around him as he travels around Jerusalem to Old Jaffa, TLV where he was raised and Mitzpe Ramon. His imagination and perception of the world is just as much a part of his reality as reality may objectively be for anyone else. With just a pen and some color paint he opens the hatch which leads to his world.
Born in Lodz. From 1912-1914, he studied graphics at Jakub Kacenbogen’s private school, and in 1915-1916 he studied at the atelier of the sculptor Henryk Glicenstein in Warsaw. From 1918-1921, he joined a group of expressionist artists and writers active in Lodz, called the “Jung Jidysz." His artwork incorporates motifs and themes from Jewish tradition and culture. In 1919, Barczyński began studying at the Academy of Art in Dresden. In 1925, the Red Cross in Paris awarded him first place in poster design. Barczyński traveled to Italy, Spain and France, eventually settling in Berlin in 1927. After the Nazi rise to power, in 1934 he returned to Lodz, where he was active in the city's art scene. In September 1939, he fled to the town Tomaszów Mazowiecki with a following of artists. In December 1940, he was interned in the ghetto with the rest of the city's Jewish residents. Because he was not a permanent resident of Tomaszów, in the spring of 1941, he was sent to Biała Rawska. During the transfer he was murdered by the Nazis. His sister returned to Lodz after the war and found some of his artwork in an attic and she later brought them with her to Israel.

Eitan is an Israeli sculptor from Maayan Baruch, a cooperative agricultural community located in the North of Israel. He derives inspiration from his surroundings, science, and artists. Marveling at the physical properties of the world, seeking to understand it, and looking to the artists who depict the human experience of being in it, all become one in his works. He seeks an approach similar to those sought by Menashe Kadishman David Fine, Shaul Sini, and David Smith. Like Kibbutz Maayan Baruch, Eitan makes something from nothing every time, using only found materials left over by local farmers and workshops to create his sculptures.
