Biography


Maayan-Shira studied art and art education in Hamidrasha School of arts and exhibited solo exhibitions and in group exhibitions In Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and all around Israel.

Everything is beautiful.

Although my paintings presents a clear realistic subject my purpose is not to imitate reality, or recreate a situation. My artwork always reveals just a fragment of some scene, while withholding the complete structure; this concealment creates a narrative vacuum and helps generate detached scenes that are not part of a foretold storyline. Thus, the meanings and stories of each image are left for the viewer to create and understand.

The subject I choose to paint are familiar every day elements, my fascination lies within the simplicity of existence and the beauty of it. The technic I use is inconsistent and affected by time chance and happy accidents.
