The artist Yair Emanuel, a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, lives and works in Jerusalem.
Emanuel’s designs of Judaic art are based upon a fusion of traditional motifs and ancient Jewish manuscripts with modern and Oriental art.
Vivid and harmonious colors as well as a mixture of the old and the new characterize Emanuel’s work, which he designs and crafts in his Jerusalem studio.
The principle techniques utilized encompass painting on silk, hand-embroidery, raw silk appliqué, painting on wood and metal designs.
Among the staff in his studio are new immigrants and handicapped employees. A portion of the studio’s profit is donated to charity.
