"Being an artist is a way of life; It is a need to record events, emotions, beliefs and passions, both metaphysical and mystical. Materials and forms play an important part for me, they are the means to create in the viewer an involvement that will last. It is a personal expression and style that gives a significant statement. I avoid repetition and seek the endless search for expressing my points of view, believing that new trends for my work will enhance my art." 
 Dan Ben-Arye.
