Artist Yair 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 in an Orthodox home and later in life adopted a more pluralistic approach to Judaism. This background influenced Emanuel's style of Judaic art. Vivid and harmonious colors as well as a mixture of the old and the new characterize Emanuel's work, which is designed and crafted in his Jerusalem studio.
The principal techniques utilized encompass painting on silk, hand-embroidery, raw-silk applique' and painting on wood.
Among the staff in his studio are new immigrants and mentally handicapped employees. A portion of the studio's profit is donated to charity. You are cordially invited to visit Emanuel's studio in Jerusalem and observe how these works of art are hand-crafted and produced. Products made in Israel
