Born in 1939, Elisha Nameri studied art at Avni Art School in Israel. As a child he began exploring his artistic potential, using any materials he had in his reach to create various artworks.
Having maintained this technique throughout his life, he frequently allows his visual artwork to emerge from his subconscious by intentionally approaching his canvas with no set idea or notion of the image he will produce. This results in procuring a vivacious, yet simple, playfulness throughout his pieces that is remarkably refreshing.
Elisha has stated that painting is ‘like a dream, you don’t know what is coming your way. What is the quest? I don’t know…’ Nor does he seek to find out. By embracing the infinite amount of meanings he and his audience can interpret from the work, he shares the journey of its creation.
