Idan was born in Haifa, Israel and he is a French National. Life took him through multiple countries, bearing witness to multiple races and cultures which are now a fundamental element in his work.
Since the launch of his serie Bigfoot, Idan, devoted to his art, rapidly gained international recognition.
His work has already been exhibited in France, Monaco, Switzerland, Italy, Costa Rica, Colombia, and the United States.
Bigfoot, the walk for awareness.
The Bigfoot Sculpture of Idan Zareski is a world traveler. He is to be exposed around the world.
Born in Latin America and after visiting many countries in 3 different continents, Bigfoot is now in North America, with the finality to end its travel in the Antarctica where an acoustic concert will be held in its honor and where to only crowd allowed will be penguins.
It will be a call for awareness to ask ourselves “who are we, and where is it that we really live!”
With its African roots, and Latin American genealogy, Bigfoot is not a denunciation to racism as it might first seem, on the contrary, it is a peaceful call of hope, for unity amongst the human race.
His huge feet are like the roots of our past, our anchor to this small fragile Earth.
Reminding to humanity that we are all from the same small planet.
His relaxed attitude and the appearance of contemplation that emanate from Bigfoot is a testimony; No matter our race or color, where we live and who we are, we are all enslaved to our paradisiac planet, our home.
At ease in all continents, Bigfoot will carry the awareness message about cultural differences and origins, in a peaceful way without offending.
Born out of a the hands of a French/Israeli sculptor that lived many years in Africa,
Europe, North America and now Latin America, Idan Zareski, a true globe trotter, has been bathed very early in the multicultural soup that makes up our dear planet.
His sculpture a peaceful human being with big feet, bares witness to human foolishness.
It carries the odors of mass deportations, forced labor, slavery and abuse that many cultures have suffered through history.
It is a call through art to reassemble, to seed awareness for the future generations.
If the arts are truly a hope for a better world, that Bigfoot is the chosen messenger to carry the task.
Keep on walking barefoot Bigfoot…
