Shai Azoulay

creator avotor Shai Azoulay シャイ・アズライ
Born in Israel in 1971, Shai Azoulay lives and works in Jerusalem. He studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, where he received both his BFA and MFA.

In his paintings, Azoulay creates a narrative abundant with figures and scenes that radiate human warmth, compassion and slight irony. His work ranges between drawing and painting, between the sophisticated and the naive, and between the omnipotent to the limited. As such, the work addresses the two conflicting worlds found in the mind of the contemporary painter  the classic, iconic, romantic and spiritual world, on one side, and the modern, moonstruck and saturated world on the other.

His work has been shown at the Israel and Tel Aviv museums and in galleries in Israel, New York, and Rome. Azoulay was the recipient of the Tel Aviv Museum prize for young artists and the Mazes Prize in Jerusalem.
