Einat Maor - Artist / Background
I have been practicing professional art for almost two decades. For the past ten years I have been mainly focusing on painting using mainly acrylics. I'm working in my own personal style, which combines abstract with a touch of graphic influence.
I studied graphic design at the Israel Institute of Technology (the Technion) during 1988-1990 as well as traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy, at the Taipei Fine Art Museum (1994-5).
Since the beginning of the Nineties, I spent much of her time living in Asia - Starting with Katmandu (1991-1994), moving to Taipei (1994-1996), and later on to the metropolis of Shanghai (2001-2005), with my work being enriched by the culture, art, spirit, people and colors of each one the different and unique places.
The Chinese influence can easily be noticed in my recent works, with the increased use of “Chinese” colors (mainly red & gold) as well as the interesting integration between Chinese motives and the abstract style, reflecting the spirits of Asia and portraying the connection between east and west.
During the years 2004-2008, my works have been exhibited in more than twenty five solo and group exhibitions in Paris (France), Vancouver & Montreal (Canada, Shanghai (China), Cluj (Romania), Nanjing (China), as well as Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, and more than 10 other cities in Israel.
My works are currently presented at the "Four Seasons Gallery" in Hertzelia, Israel. A number of them can be found in private collections around the world, including Israel, China, USA, Switzerland, and Malaysia.
I am a member of the Free Union of Painters & Sculptors of Haifa and the Northern Region and the Netanya Artists association.
