Nirit Takele

Bio

Nirit Takele, (b. 1985, Ethiopia) made Aliya to Israel in 1991 in “Operation Solomon” an Israeli military operation that transported more than 14,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel in a mere 36 hours. Takele depicts her rich cultural heritage in her work, illustrating the everyday life of the Israeli Ethiopian community.

A bold colorist, Takele builds up faceted figurative bodies through the application of near abstract flat forms. With a sharp understanding of the power adjacent colors impart upon one another, her figures pop from the canvas with vivid dimensionality.

Takele was awarded the Sotheby’s ‘Under the Hammer’ prize and her work has been shown in numerous exhibitions including the Haifa Museum 2017, Fresh Paint Art Fair 9 2017 and The Negev Museum of Art 2016. In 2015, Takele received the Talia Sidi Prize for Academic Excellence awarded by Shenkar College. Her works are included in prestigious public and private collections including the Israel Museum, Tel Aviv museum, and Shenkar College.
