Shlomi Nahmani (b.1979), lives and works in Tel Aviv.
Graduated at the Visual Communication Department at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (2005) and is a lecturer at the Industrial Design Department at Shenkar College.
Shlomi’s printmaking artworks portrait the Israeli urban nature scenery, the intimate relations between the local architecture and the cypress, palms, and ficus trees. Slowly vanishing romantic views that I wish to capture through the eyes of the pedestrian.
The prints are made in drypoint technique, the most basic etching method. Drypoint demands physical effort from the artist, as do the harsh views he paints.
Shlomi’s attraction to drypoint print making and nature drawing is driven by the landscape drawings of artists who have inspired me since young age, such as Herman Shtuck, Anna Ticho, Ofer Lalush an Walid Abu Shakra.
