The artist’s work from immediately after art school in London was heavily indebted to the aesthetics of Minimalist sculpture. He has also cited Henry Moore as one of his biggest influences. Kadishman died on May 8, 2015 in Ramat Gan, Israel. Today, his works are in the collections of the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, NY, the Jewish Museum in New York, the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, among others.
