Born Jerusalem, Israel, 1979 Lives and works in Melbourne I Naarm VIC
Inbal Nissim’s intuitive, poignant paintings are drawn from her inner archive, including private, collective, historical and subconscious experiences and memories.
Working primarily in ink on either paper or fabric, her mystical, nearly dream-like paintings flow with the many shades of life’s encounters; from the tumultuous to joyful and beyond. Her innate sense of colour, line, form and light give expression to the world as she understands it. Inbal’s deeply felt, oftentimes profound work has a unique way of connecting with those who engage with it.
Inbal received her MFA (2011) as well as BFA (2006) from the Bezel Academy of Art and Design, from which she graduated with Honours and received several awards including the Mitchell Presser Prize for Excellence in Painting. She was previously a lecturer for painting and drawing at The Bezalel Academy, and the Bar Ilan University (2013 – 2017) in Israel. Recently, she was a recipient of a City of Melbourne Arts Grant (2021). Inbal’s work has been exhibited internationally and is represented in private collections.
