Lives and works in New York City.
Yigal Ozeri was born in Israel in 1958. Ozeri is best known for his large-scale cinematic portraits of distinctive young women in rich prodigious landscapes. With tinges of Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics, Ozeri brings an ethereal and uninhibited sensibility to his paintings. His portraits denote art historical foundations in romanticism, while also offering contemporary notions of sensual femininity.
Ozeri has shown extensively around the world including solo exhibits in Spain, China, The Netherlands, France, Germany, and Mexico. His work is featured on the cover and included in the book Photorealism and the Digital Age. He is also in the permanent collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, The McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, The Jewish Museum in New York, The New York Public Library, The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the Albertina in Vienna, among others. He is represented by Louis K. Meisel Gallery in New York City. He received his undergraduate training at the California College of the Arts and received his MFA from Sacramento State College.
