About the Artist

Icon Collection by Anat Zehavi

“I started painting since I’m very little”

“I used to copy my father’s drawing and took it from there. Then I got a set of oil paints for my twelfth birthday and then started a big love story. I copied all the big classic oil painters and fell deeply in love with Johannes Vermeer and Rembrandt. Later with Van Gogh and Renoir ( big time).”

Anat Zehavi
Born in Tel Aviv Israel in 1974 and lives in the Netherlands.

“I paint because I can’t make music or sing.”

“I love to paint basically everything. I can say that I teached myself to paint.

I work with oil paint. I love to work small lately, (not bigger then 120 cm) but of course it changes all the time.”
