Description The series of original paintings TO BE STRANGE is dedicated to the borderland between boring norm and social aggression. How to keep personality, but not become a freak; to find yourself and not to be scared.
Elisheva Nesis, Jerusalem Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement My main interest is looking for signs of mysteries in our life and studying evidences of their penetrations into the real world. Almost all my paintings and books are around this theme. As well I've been trying to detect mysterious penetrations in some «border» individuals. So it was just natural to me to settle in Jerusalem, the most mysterious place in the world. This town has a great influence at my paintings and texts.
I studied fine art in Russia (Stavropol Art School, P.Gorban's studio) and Israel (Betsalel Academy of Fine Arts). I am a Fellow of Israel Professional Artists Association (IPAA). More then 170 paintings in private collections in USA, Germany, UK, France, Israel, Russia, Ukraine, Canada, Australia, Ireland and Greece.
