Itamar Yehiel, born in 1984 in Jerusalem, Israel, currently resides in Berlin, Germany. He is a contemporary embroidery sculptor artist best known for his distinctive three-dimensional embroideries depicting philosophical and emotional interpretations of organic objects. His works encompass a combination of different thread materials such as silk, cotton, nylon, and polyester, intricately embroidered into three-dimensional forms.


Itamar's artistic exploration delves into the tension between realism and illusion, organic and artificial, temporary and eternal, contemporary and traditional, and fine art and craft. Through his artistic endeavors, Itamar delves into profound themes, inviting viewers to contemplate the complexities of existence. One of his important projects, the 'Maple Leaf Cycle' (2022), narrates the organic story of mortality, intertwining themes of hope and new beginnings with decay and sentiments of melancholy. Another significant project is ‘Auschwitz-Birkenau - memorial artwork’ (2023), where the embroidered stone appears to disintegrate into separate pieces, symbolizing the destruction of nations, religions, and entire communities. However, the singular threads gather and regroup back into a solid whole, depicting the resilience of survivors and the collective hope for a better future.


Itamar Yehiel's artistic journey has been marked by notable exhibitions, collections, and participations. His works have been showcased in prestigious venues such as the Museum of Decorative Arts and Zeughausmesse in Berlin and the GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts in Leipzig, Germany, as well as in ‘Max54 Gallery’ in Augsburg, Germany. His participation in the "Threads of Tomorrow" exhibition at the ‘Museu Textil’ in New Orleans, United States, further underscores his international recognition. Itamar's art has garnered attention from various private national and international collections, and he has received accolades such as the 3rd prize for Applied Art at the Zeughausmesse in Berlin, Germany, and recognition as a finalist in the State Prize for Creative Crafts in Berlin, Germany. Additionally, his participation in events such as the textile art biennial in Sava, Slovenia, ARTMUC in Munich, Germany, and the Discovery Art Fair in Frankfurt and Cologne, Germany, solidifies his position as a notable figure in contemporary fine art.
