Nuji Judaica Fine Arts and Design invites you to experience the connection between tradition and modernity.
Javier Nujimovich was born in Argentina and moved to Israel in 1999. He was trained as a silversmith and metal artist at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. He graduated in 2005 and apprenticed with various well-known Israeli artists. In 2007 he opened his own studio for modern Judaica and gradually began introducing more traditional Judaica elements and motifs into his work. Today his work is characterized by a mix of glass and metals that combine geometric shapes in vibrant colors. The inspiration for his art comes from the giant skyscrapers of Tel Aviv and can be seen in his ingenious method of taking a large structure and replicating it in a micro manner in his various mezuzot and other signature designs. In addition, Nujimovich is renowned for his breathtaking design of Torah casings which are cast from gold plate and silver and set with crystals and stones and include traditional Biblical images and quotations. All of Nujimovich's designs are handmade, meaning no two pieces are alike, and his craftsmanship is unparalleled in its authenticity and uniqueness.
Nujimovich's studio is located in Kfar Adumim in the Judean Desert, a twenty minute drive from Jerusalem. The Biblical landscape of the golden sands of the desert hills and the endless blue sky play an integral part in Nujimovich's work which also integrates a constant contrast of colors, materials and time.
What sets Nujimovich apart from other Israeli artists is his talent for creating customized orders that allow his clients to take an active part in the design, creation and ultimately birth of his artistic creations.
