~Creating art that brings forth the wisdom and beauty of sacred Hebrew letters~
Hey, you there! Welcome to the world of scribal art!
A modern day expression that is based in the wisdom of the Torah, and the power of the holy Hebrew language.
Hi, I’m Kalman Gavriel Delmoor, and I bring the wisdom and beauty of the ancient Hebrew language forth with my artwork. I work with the traditional scribal tools such as quills, parchment, and ink. In addition I love using more modern mediums such as color, negative space, and shape.
I’ve always had a passion for the hebrew letters. When I made aliyah to Israel I found a scribal teacher, Rabbi Yair Eisenstock. When I finished my IDF service as a paratrooper, I knew I had a calling as a scribe, and as an artist. I began writing Ketubahs and small prayers while living in Nachlaot, a neighborhood near the Shuk in Jerusalem.
Over time I began to see the letters as a form of art, to use their spiritual power to create a bond between people, art, and ancient texts. I began collaborating with local artists, running workshops, and educating myself about scribes, the meaning behind the hebrew language, and their history.
My studio is in the Old City of Jerusalem, at the four Sephardi Synagogues. I’ve been inspired by the city and its history ever since I worked as a dorm counselor in a yeshivah here. I collect stories of it’s history
The most exciting part of working here is meeting people from all over the world; sharing my passion, art, knowledge, stories, and history.
Welcome to my online home. I invite you to come in and join my journey.
