About

Yosi Lubalsky

 

I have had the painting bug in me since childhood and it has grown more powerful in the last decade. I gained and education in architecture between 1999-2005 and took courses in architectural sketching, in which I documented and painted buildings in the alleys of "Neve Tzedek" neighborhood and its surroundings in Tel Aviv. As well, I took enrichment courses in sketching and painting. After graduating I worked in architecture.

Between the years 2008-2010 I focused on enhancing my studies in realistic figurative painting under the guidance of a teacher in Haifa, a graduate of the "Ha'tachana" school in Tel-Aviv that specializes in that school of art, and I acquired sketching techniques in oil paint and coal. From 2010 until today I paint autodidactic Israeli nature and plant subjects.

I was born and raised in Hadera, in a rural environment in which there were wilderness areas, since the construction boom wasn't as developed as it is nowadays. In my paintings I express a longing for nature as it can be seen in landscapes views, trees, creation and change.

Nature as a foundation for the idealization of the beautiful and fundamental Israel – working the land, smells, colors and experiences. I knowingly and instinctually paint on large canvases to strengthen the viewer experience and include him as a part of the painting.

Living in Haifa nowadays allows me to experience and paint the natural wilds of the northern and valley regions of Israel that are characterized in my paintings.

I am a fan of cats and own a few. My acquaintance with them inspired me and led me to paint portraits of them. The platform in presenting the cat and its expression in self- portrait arouses and strengthens my perception of the humanity and warmth residing in cats, in addition to our apprehension of them as street cats that are pests in everyday life.

As part of my training as a dance class graduate and dancing instructor, the expression of motion is an inseparable part of the creation and is characterized in the drawing of trees in their formative appearance and their standing on the ground, and in the image and perception of the tree in the personal space of the viewer, as well as in the movement of lines that characterizes the trunk’s texture.

Motion can also be distinguished in the coal drawing and oil paintings on the subject of "fatherhood", figurative relations and composition among the figures and the motion between them.

Currently I dedicate most of my time to painting and research which lead me on a journey of self- discovery through reflection on the processes that I go through and experience while creating.
