Yael Saranga

WINNER OF THE 37th MINI PRINT INTERNATIONAL OF CADAQUÉS, 2017

Born in 1954 in Kibbutz Maagan-Michael, Israel. Studied Graphic Design (1980-83) at Newcastle Polytechnic, UK, specializing in printmaking. Expanded her printmaking skills (1989-90) at Purdue University, Indiana, USA.

After over two decades of working as a graphic designer and illustrator, she returned to her real passion – printmaking. In 2009, established her printmaking studio in Mazkeret Batya, Israel, where she implements mainly “non-toxic” techniques (linocut, etching, dry point, spit bite, and monotype). In her artwork, she combines computer image processing and likes experimenting with variations on classical techniques: “mistakes offer opportunities for new discoveries”.
