Ketubah Artists – one of a kind
Ketubah Artists – one of a kind
In the last post about Katubah Artists, I wrote about three artists whose business is centered around the Ketubah products. Whether they sell additional wedding products, or prints of their original art, they are still identified by many as Ketubah Artists. This time, I wanted to share with you several finds that I have collected in the last few months. These are artists and designers whose main body of work is not specifically related to Ketubahs, but they were commissioned to create a Ketubah to couples who love their art.
Oded Ezer is an internationally known Israeli typographic artist, logo and type designer. I am not an expert at all on anything typography, but you got to love Oded’s innovation and artistic flair in any of his type creations and design projects. Take for instant his “I ❤ milton” poster, whose structural play with letters of Milton Glaser’s iconic I ❤ NY logo is brilliant (although this post is about Ketubahs, I just had to show you this poster!)
Oded’s Ketubah combines 5 languages – Hebrew, Yiddish, English, French and Spanish – by itself a very unique feature and a challenge for any designer. The header letters seems like they are jumping into place while we look at them, dancing and filled with motion. Although monochromatic and using text only, you got to love this Ketubah!
Fazzino is known worldwide for his 3D art. Cityscapes crammed with city icons, whimsical and detailed pop art, you usually won’t associate him with the art of Katubah making. But when one of his collectors, Jaime Perla, got married, she did the right thing for her, and commissioned a special Ketubah with everything special to her and then her husband-to-be. You can also see the happy couple on YouTube with the Ketubah as featured in Platinum Weddings.
Claudine Hellmuth, a mixed media collage artist, author and illustrator, developed a unique playful and hip style, combining illustration with pasted black-and-white head shots of her clients. Most of her custom commissioned artwork depicts daily life scenes. But she had the opportunity to create also a Ketubah featuring the bride, groom and their cat ! The text was provided by her client, both in Hebrew and English. A small nice touch was when Claudine sent the pen she used for the line drawing to be used when signing the Ketubah.

Geezees Custom Canvas Art
Geezees creates custom canvases using her clients’ photos and words. She combine them in typographic beautiful manner to create life keepsakes of life special moments – weddings, prayers, baby births and lots more. Here is one of her designs, a Ketubah showing both bride and groom, and the text of the Ketubah in English. Very unique and modern way to present your love.
So whether you love a specific Ketubah Artist work, or just love any artist’s style, don’t shy away from commissioning the art you love to your special day. After all, this is one of the most important pieces of art you will ever buy, a symbol of your love and unity, which will proudly decorate your home in a prominent place.
Here is for Art and for Love.
