Artwork by Ofir Shorshy
My name is Ofir and I am 26 years old, from Israel and I am environmental scientist and artiest in my soul.
Art is part of my life since childhood, I live to paint and learned from my mother and never had a formal education in art.
Art for me is a way to express my connection to nature, I paint nature landscapes, forests and mountains because my soul long for it, because I don’t live in such places art help me to bring those places atmospheres into my life.
My artistic challenges currently are to give the right depth to the painting and the right use of light and shadow. As well my challenge is to get started with oil painting which I know people say it’s hard.
I want to learn how to use oil painting, color theory and how to paint human properly like the old masters, and botanical painting.
From what I have seen so far online and on this website about the Old Master Academy is that the art is taught in a precise and gradual way so everyone can understand. I was impressed by how realistic their painting are.
I want to win this Old Master Academy Course because this expertise in classical art will enable me to bring back beauty in to the world and to bring the Gods and Goddess back to our lives.
I believe we all have a mission to participate in creation and enhance our reality. In these days when excellence, virtue and skill are rare it is our duty for the sake of ourselves and the next generations to perfect our skills and archive excellence.
I believe people should vote for me because I have devotion and I see art as a means to connect to the Gods and nature and I feel that with the proper education I can truly bring back some light to the world.
Thank you for voting for me and helping me with this mission.
