Tel Aviv Kunst

Interview. Shira Barzilay

Shira Barzilay lives in Tel Aviv, Israel. She creates her art out of a deep and emotional spot with a cheerful disposition. In this exclusive interview, she told us more about her work and her daily routine.

What is the thing that gives you the most joy and fun?

Laughing so hard that my stomach hurts. Being surrounded by friends and family and my beloved dog – BONO and of course there’s the joy of creation – which is totally different but is strong no less.

What’s the best thing about being an artist?

The satisfaction of knowing that you created something. It is a rush no drug will ever come near.

What subjects inspire you?

Nature, astrology, fashion, people and music

What’s your work-day like?

Mostly sitting in my dark studio which i call „the cave“ in front of the Ipad or computer. My world is my desk. I am managing my art and my business, mostly on the „dry“ areas of answering email and managing orders. At night I am more creative.

What item would you be lost without?

My Ipad Pro. It is my world. I take it almost everywhere I go. It is the best tool I ever had – for work and play.

What are your plans for 2019?

Going strong with my art and collaborations. Growing on Instagram and spreading my art to the world and getting into live animation and traveling the world performing in different amazing events.
