Tamir Shefer

Tamir tries to provoke the spectator by raising questions. He does that by integrating familiar symbols in mixed media.

“I believe that society today is overcrowded and such is his art work” dense, colourful and full of symbolism and images. The symbols that often appear in his work are very familiar: icons taken from our daily life that deliver to the viewer’s eye critical messages concerning our society. He uses these images and symbols in a repetitive manner that takes on the aura of meditative rituals.

Tamir’s art work has been shown in many solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums around the world. Several of his paintings were commissioned and others have been purchased by prominent art collectors.

Tamir divides his time between painting in his studio in Jaffa and as a professor in the Department of Visual Communication and Design at Holon Institute of Technology (HIT), in Israel.
