Born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1971. Noemi lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel.
She studied painting at the Institute of art, Bat-Yam, Israel. Despite her attraction to art, Noemi’s life led her through many different paths and challenges but it eventually brought her to her real destiny.
When Safir was around the age of 35 she rediscovered herself as an artist, which is why her paintings are engaged in the joy of creating. Her works depict scenes that are taken from her personal life and natural environment, which she first records by photographing or sketching while strolling in the streets.
Safir then transforms these photographs and sketches into monumental paintings using a broad color palette which echoes Pop culture. Noemi attributes these happy colors with great power in reflecting her own life and in revealing its viewers’ private aspirations.
Noemi Safir’s works are collected in private collections and public venues and have been shown in solo and group exhibitions around the world.
