Ilana Gal born In Israel in 1968. Ilana lives and creates in moshav Givat Nilli.
Ilana studied Graphic Design at the Emek Izrael College. Ilana leaves
the interpretation of her work to the viewer, allowing them to give
their own personal meaning to her creations.
Her expressive and colorful paintings feature heartbreaking figures,
symbols, masks, animals and small women. These objects are reflections
of items brought to her door by African merchants during her childhood
in Africa. Her memories of her years growing up in Africa where
triggered by a drawing her son had made. Since then her paintings were
full of icons of ritual tribal tradition, which shifts her work into the
sphere of cultural exploration. Gal exhibits in solo and group
exhibitions, in Israel and abroad.
.Her first solo exhibition was held in Beit Zionei America in Tel Aviv in 2002.
