Born in France in 1970, Michel Platnic obtained a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering in 1994. He moved to Israel at 28 and found his artistic voice in his new place of residence and went on to study theatre, performance, martial arts, and dance. Realizing his inclination towards the Fine Arts, Platnic graduated in 2010 with honors in Fine Arts from the Midrasha School of Art, Beit Berl Academic College in Israel. That very year, he received the Shpilman Grant for Excellence in Photography and was selected by Serge Tiroche for ST-ART, an incubator project for young artists. Since then, Platnic implements his interdisciplinary skills and knowledge in his art work, challenging the boundaries of the artistic medium, and exploring the means and manifestations of the work of art.
Platnic's works have been exhibited in galleries, institutions and museums across Israel and abroad. His solo exhibitions include the Multi-Media Art Museum, Moscow, Art Plural Gallery and Art Stage Art Fair in Singapore, Haifa Museum, Ramat-Gan Museum, Fresh Paint Art Fair and Gordon Gallery in Tel-Aviv and the Open Museum of Photography, Tel-Hai in Israel. Platnic has also participated in group exhibitions around the world including the Gazelli Art House in London, FusionsArts Museum, New York and the Center for Contemporary Art in Tel-Aviv.
Today Platnic lives between Berlin and Tel-Aviv and is a guest student in the Art and Media “Meisterschüler” programme of the Universität der Künste, Berlin.
