About Rona Shahar

Born in Tel Aviv, studied art at Hamidrasha and then in Rotterdam Kunstacademie. Painting in oils, watercolors, markers and pens impressions of the immediate surroundings that are being processed through memory, feeling, judgment and the heart’s wishes. Often drawing attention to the “back yard” – whether at home, various locations in Haifa, absolutely Haifa itself, as well as abroad (notably New York).

Mostly working on plexiglass, plywood and paper.
