About the artist, Yair Emanuel
Yair Emanuel's work inspires pure joy and delight and encompasses painting on silk, hand-embroidery, raw silk applique' as well as painting on wood. Emanuel, a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, lives and works in Jerusalem.
Born in Kibbutz Sha'alavim, he grew up in Jerusalem. His style is based upon a fusion of traditional motifs and ancient Jewish manuscripts with modern and Oriental art. Vivid and harmonious colors as well as a unique blend of the old and the new characterize Emanuel's work designed in his Jerusalem studio.
Among the staff in his studio are new immigrants and mentally handicapped employees. A portion of the studio's profit is donated to charity.
On a personal note, we have included a small sampling of Emanuel's work here at the Awesome Store because it is so irresistibly filled with joyous colors and a child-like innocence that can't help but make us smile.
