Ron Gilard born 1972 in Tel Aviv. Currently a New Yorker, Gilad is a well-established and esteemed Israeli-by-origin designer who quickly drew the attention of curators, galleries, designers and press even while still a student at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem.
Gilad has been widely shown in solo and group exhibitions at the top museums and design galleries in Israel, including the Tel-Aviv Museum of Art, Periscope Contemporary Design Gallery, the Jerusalem Art Center, and the Ramat-Gan Museum of Modern Art. His work has been selected for the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum in NY and the Tel-Aviv Museum of modern Art as well as for private collections. In early 2001, Gilad completed an environmental sculpture comprised of one chair in many configurations for the city of Jerusalem that was heralded by the Municipal Art Committee as one of the most elegant designs for the city.
