Bina Dekner-Raviv | Biographical Notes
Born in 1960, Bat-Yam, Israel.
Married plus two, living in Modi`in, Israel.
Graduated in 1982 from the Tel Aviv University - History and Archaeology Bachelor`s degree.
Graduated in 1986 from Bat Yam School of Art- Painting, Sculpting and Graphics.
My style is Realistic-Figurative.
My experience with sculpting the human body in 3D complements my Paintings & vice versa. I am inspired by the relationship of humans in the context of the environment - I try to capture the spontaneity and comic moments in life and show them in my work.
As an art teacher, I am always looking for new techniques.
I use brushes and Palette knife to express depth and richness of colors. Adding light and shadow for unique differentiating dimension. I paint portraits and people from all over the world.
As a sculptor my focus is the human body,
I combine several clay`s in order to create a multi-color, with original natural color sculptures.
My sculptures are accurate realistic providing optimistic and positive approach showing the beauty of humankind.
My art is displayed at several galleries, business and residential homes in Israel and Miami.
