Eshchar Hanoch Kliengbiel (born 1985) is an artist based in Tel Aviv.
He is a member of the cooperative gallery P8 in Tel Aviv for the past five years. His main practice focuses on drawing, through it he explores the last romantic frontier - Outer space and the limits of the medium. The drawings are created by Frottage technique through repetitive pictorial action. Through this practice, various images begin to appear on the paper, usually tracing the landscapes of unknown worlds or his personal history. His works have been shown in several solo and group exhibitions across Israel and found in Haaretz Art Collection (Schocken), Rosenblatt Collection among several private collections around the world.
