Artist Spotlight: Efrat Klipshtein
I wanted to become an artist when I first saw an exhibition by artist Michal Na’aman. Particularly, when I looked at two paintings from that exhibition: ‘The inability to remain alone (Fun and Glory)’ and ‘The inability to remain alone (Work and Worry)’. They made such a strong impression on me, that I decided to pursue an art career.
Michal Naaman’s exhibition happened when I was a graduate student at the Technion. I was invited by one of my teachers to go. And as I said, her complex and cleaver paintings amazed me. I found myself returning to see the exhibition a few times. This led me to attend Michal’s class at “HaMidrasha” art school. Initially, I thought art would just become a hobby, but from that moment on my life changed and I never left the art world.
A stimulating life full of experiences, a well-equipped and spacious studio with art and history books. And maybe some money for essential expenses like food and housing.
