About The Artist

Born in London, England in 1946, Archie Granot moved to Israel in 1967. Prior to settling in Jerusalem in 1978, he was a member of an agricultural community where he milked cows and grew melons. He has a M.Phil in Russian Studies from the University of Glasgow, Scotland and a B.A. in Political Science and Russian Studies from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem.
 
Archie Granot created his first papercut in 1979 and has been creating paper art ever since. Many of his multilayered paper cuts carry a reminder of the Holy City, a source of his inspiration. Granot often uses texts that relate to Jerusalem, Judaica, Judaism, Israel, and Jewish weddings (Ketubahs).

To find out more about commissioning a ketubah or other works contact the artist today.
