David Sharir, the son of Russian immigrants, was born in Israel. After studying art in Tel Aviv, Sharir went on to study architecture and theater design in Florence and Rome. The brightly-colored costumes and intricate stage designs he created for these productions have profoundly influenced his art. When Sharir moved to Jaffa in 1966, his hallmark style was truly developed. Studio, family, and spiritual devotion all serve as inspiration for the imagery in his work. His evolving style combines personal experience, Biblical symbolism, and fantasy. Sharir has been with the Gallery since it was founded.
