Graphite and Oil Color Pencils on Arches
A6 (15x10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Liz Marr was born in the former USSR and immigrated to Israel as part of the infamous Russian Immigration Wave of the 90s. What she knew as life in the Soviet Union was actually a life of frequent traveling between Moscow and Samarkand. All that until the Soviet Union fell apart, Uzbekistan got its independence and she found herself in the periphery of Israel.
Despite having drawn her entire childhood, her interest in mathematics and being an autodidact programmer led her to the beginning of a career in the Israeli startup scene. A career which she gladly left for studying arts after a few years. Still, her analytical background is an inherent part of her artistic process.
