Idan Zareski is a French-Israeli sculptor born in Haifa, Israel. The artist has lived in multiple countries in which he experienced different cultures and lifestyles. Now settled in Costa Rica, he expresses through his art and technique the impressions that these experiences have left upon him.

By combining his ideas with materials such as Resin or Bronze, Idan creates bodies in movement, balanced or frozen in space: sculpture projects that will be finalized in his workshop in Costa Rica. The artist never took any art or anatomy course, he instead follows his instinct and emotions rather than any drawings or sketches: ninety percent of his creations are shaped in less than one hour. The memories of his childhood, mostly spent in Africa, represent his main source of inspiration: the artist recreates that to which he has been a witness while leaving space for improvisation to bring us the Bigfoot Family universe.

A peaceful call for hope

A Bigfoot Family is born: Babyfoot, Bigfoot, Ladyfoot, Grandpafoot, Grandmafoot, Longfoot and Minifoot are among the team members. Each one possesses his own characteristic while still keeping a common familiar symbolism: these big feet, which represent our roots, and our attachment to the same planet, the Earth. According to the artist “no matter what our race or color is, where we live or who we are, we are all enslaved to our paradisiac planet, our home”.

This idea of unity amongst the human race is something Idan Zareski wants to express through his work. The artist diverts and transforms the human anatomy in his sculptures: amplification of body parts, relaxing attitude, dramatization, pop and generous colours varying from metallic purple to bright green. These elements contribute to surprising the audience, while portraying a tranquil peaceful message. A more detailed observation of the sculptures reveals a reflection and critique of our own humanity: these family members all carry an awareness message about cultural differences and origins.

The Bigfoot family members are present in various places around the world (Latin America, North America, Europe and Asia). Idan Zareski finds his artistic expression just as much in monumental sculptures as in little ones and his art work can now be found in various museums, galleries, shows, luxury hotels, and parks... Miami (USA), New York City (USA), Monaco or San Jose (Costa-Rica) are among the various cities where the BigFoot Family has taken root. These sculptures often generate smiles and draw attention from the public: people of all age and ethnicity seem to want a part of them, to hug them and to take pictures with them.
