David Wakstein

Steven Plaut quoted on his blog a Ben Gurion University professor who wrote about his visit to the Tel-Aviv Museum of Arts where he found himself in an exhibition by David Wakstein called "Explosion". 
While I don't regard myself qualified to judge the artistic quality of the paintings, I would like to give you a few examples of the works of art: A map of the world and on it hands engraved with a Star of David and blood dripping from them. A Star of David combined with a Swastika. Two red canvasses, on one of them two small circles with the Star of David, on the other a small circle with a Swastika. I happen to remember that this masterpiece is called "settlers".
