Noemi Safir


Born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1971, Noemi Safir lives and works in Tel-Aviv, Israel.

Around the age of 40 this dynamic woman chose to part almost completely from the life she knew till then and made a courageous decision to fulfil her forever dream and passion, to paint. Today Safir's works include large scale paintings of women figures that depict scenes from her life that led her to where She is today, conveying power and desire and having a wide range of emotions. The figures Safir paints are mostly a reflection of her which embody her struggle to accept her own independence as a woman and as an artist, without any apologies or doubts.

Safir's painting technique uses fragmentation of the images and colourful rich pallet. These make the figures in her paintings to be so bewitching and powerful, as if to say, “Yes, I am beautiful and young, alive and full of passion, driven by emotions and desire to be myself in all my glory.”
