Moran Shir (b. 1986, Israel) Lives and works in Tel Aviv. Holds a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem. Was marked as a promising artist just as she finished her studies and participated in the group exhibition ‘Rising Star’ at Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art .Inspired by cartoons, toys and fairy tales, Motran’s artwork is drawn obsessively in a childlike, naïve style. As a former animation student, Shir is attracted to a flat aesthetic, which she creates by using markers, pencils and nail polish on paper.
