Yossi Rosenstein is a contemporary Israeli artist born in Jerusalem in 1950.

Rosenstein who has developed an original and innovative meaning to the notion of 'Jewish Art'. He is a ninth-generation descendant to an Israeli glorious dynasty. He chose to dedicate himself to art and developing a new doctrine of art which gave original and innovative meaning to the notion of 'Jewish Art'. As opposed to the traditional Jewish art (Judaica) which is basically only a decoration of Jewish motifs and symbols, Yossi’s unique art concept is universal without limitations of religion and race; it conveys emotion and deep messages combined with Jewish and biblical visual themes. 

Yossi Rosenstein is an autodidact; he has never studied art at any institute. According to him, he continues learning all the time. Thanks to his innovative perception and his amazing technical ability, he gathered much attention early on in his career as a Jewish artist. His first solo exhibition took place in Tel Aviv 1973. Following three solo exhibitions in Israel that were seen by many influential people such as Baroness de Rothschild, Henry Kissinger, the Israeli president and many others, 

Rosenstein’s works are considered masterpieces; they reside with honor in significant collections around the world together with other masterpieces of prestigious contemporary and modern artists. Yossi Rosenstein translates the bible into the art language. His works are rich with thought and imagination. His paintings which illustrate biblical events appear as a realistic style even though they are extremely symbolic, particularly the characters and the animals. In the same way the painting’s names which are verses from the bible. For this reason, Yossi Rosenstein’s unique art style is conspicuous and easily identifiable even though each piece conveys a different message. 

Using classic technique, modern symbolism and Jewish philosophy, Rosenstein is giving a deep interpretation to the biblical concepts. The integration of past and present emphasizes the eternity of the bible and illustrates that each and every verse, commandment and event are still relevant to daily life. Rosenstein’s paintings require profound studying in order to understand the deep message concealed in the painting, which is the personal interpretation of the verses from his unique philosophical point of view. Yossi Rosenstein gives a new dimension to Jewish Art based on innovative interpretation of the Jewish essence. This historic breakthrough ideology paved a way for many other new Jewish artists that followed in his footsteps to create their own Jewish symbolic art. Combining traditional Jewish ideology with contemporary art methods and styles, Rosenstein makes possible an entirely new genre of Jewish Art.
