Selected Works

Yigal Ozeri (Born in 1958, Israel) 

Lives and works in New York City

New York City based Israeli artist Yigal Ozeri is best known for his large-scale cinematic portraits of
distinctive young women in rich prodigious landscapes. With tinges of Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics, Ozeri
brings an ethereal and uninhibited sensibility to his paintings. His portraits denote art historical foundations
in romanticism, while also offering contemporary notions of sensual femininity.

Rooted in Carl Jung’s concept of anima, Ozeri’s depictions of a revitalized connectivity to nature prompt a
confrontation of subconscious effeminate identity, and reinstate the beauty of innocent authentic
experience. His photorealistic oil paintings convey the spirit of his subjects, giving way to a seductive
power. As a result, the viewer is compelled to gaze into the allegorical domain between reality and fantasy.

Ozeri has shown extensively around the world including solo exhibits in Spain, China, The Netherlands,
France, Germany, and Mexico. His work is featured on the cover, and included in the book Photorealism
and the Digital Age. He is currently in a traveling Museum show titled 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting
that was showcased in a number of venues including: Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, and Museo
de Bellas Artes in Bilbao. He is also in the permanent collections of: The Whitney Museum of American Art,
The McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, The Jewish Museum in New York, The New York Public Library,
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the Albertina in Vienna, among others. He is represented by Louis K.
Meisel Gallery in New York City.
