Background as an artist

 am an artist who Engaged in wide range of subjects and mediums such as Drawing / Performance - Video / Installation - Sculpture and an educator.

graduated in 2013 with hig honors  honors from the Faculty of Art rt HaMidrasha at Beit Berel Academic College in Israel. 

Since then I held a solo exhibition at Beit KanerMunicipal Art Gallery,Rishon Lezion and have been working various art projects in gallery and  museum exhibitionsand as an educator ofart.

 
How did you end up choosing your media? Best/worst sides of it? 

My artworks are based on multi layered processes of Mediums exploration including painting, sculpture, VideoSound and botany. am interested in the confluences between techniques and mediums in order to explore the interactions. 

Usually I have a vision and then I decide which media will serve it on the best way. It allows me to stay free and to be faithful to the idea that I would like to express.

 
What do you find as the best and worst sides of being an artist?  

I believe that words can't always describe or convey everything I want to express as an artist. Therefore the best part of being an artist is having the ability to express your thoughts and feelings through physical or visual mediaFurthermore I love the freedom of the creativity, there are no rules or limits to chain you. To see and to hear how the viewer experience  my artwork is definitely one of the most fascinating things for me in this process. 

One of the hardest thing of being artist is making yourself a framework. I find that the creative process forces you to explore, work and develop constantly.  

 
What are the best sides / opportunities in having an art residency?  

Tget out  from my comfort zone and to be able to concentrate in my artwork. 

The opportunity to live and talk with other international artists or locals.  I’m very much enjoying soaking in their unique presence and learning a bit about their culture, art and food:).

Haihatus is a  special place surrounded by beautiful nature which  allows a relaxed and creative spirit . 

 

What are your plans after Haihatus? 

Go back and teach art with the inspiration I got from here and to complete a new series of paintings based off the work I’ve done here and submit it for exhibition at a few galleries. 

How does Haihatus meet your expectations?

So far, all my expectations were met and more

There’s a very relaxed and creative spirit here; the incredible nature is really special and ispiring. I got the chance to meet all of those amazing people and artists, which was so fun to create next to them and to hang out with!

Haihatus gave me the opportunity to deviate from my normal routine back home and get my art practice in order. The house is really amazing and Merja really helped  with whatever I needed.
